What is Direct Cremation at Tithe Green?
Direct cremation is a no-frills cremation without the attendance of family or friends at the crematorium or any kind of funeral service. Following the cremation, the ashes are returned to close family to be scattered, kept or interred. If you do not want a funeral and just an affordable cremation, then this is the option for you.
At Tithe Green, we offer exclusive direct cremation and green burial packages that take care of everything from the passing of your loved one to their interment at one of our beautiful burial grounds surrounded by nature.
Please note that we currently only offer direct cremations in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
