If Simple, Pure or Direct Cremation is your preference – We can help

Andrew Anderson & Sons Funeral Directors offer a Direct Cremation option with the care and attention of a local family business.

A direct cremation is a cremation with no service, music or mourners in attendance. Our bearers will convey your loved one to a crematorium with the care and dignity that you can trust.

The price listed below is for a direct cremation at todays cost, but we offer Direct Cremation funeral plans too, please contact us for more information.
