The Direct Cremation Service Fully Inclusive
(Only available from 08.30 a.m. – 10.00 a.m.,  Monday – Friday at the East Devon Crematorium, near Whimple.)
We, at Shoobridge Funeral Services, pride ourselves on our clear, transparent and honest approach to pricing.
As such, we have designed four fully inclusive funeral services in addition to our bespoke price options.
Our ‘basic’ funeral service - The Direct Cremation Service, complies with SAIF’s (The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors) and the NAFD’s (National Association of Funeral Directors) codes of conduct regarding the provision of a simple or basic funeral service which is both dignified and affordable.
Included in every service:
Our funeral services include as standard, all of the traditional services such as: preparing the deceased for Chapel of Rest visits; facilitating Chapel of Rest visits for family and friends; compiling and placing newspaper notices – obituaries and ‘Thanks’ acknowledgements; administration of charitable donations; ordering of floral tributes on behalf of clients, if required; home visits to arrange the funeral; conveying floral tributes to local hospitals, Care Homes or family homes following the funeral service and the collecting and temporary storage of cremated remains.
Personalising your service:
You can personalise The Direct Cremation Service with additional proceedings or options such as: Funeral Notices in national newspapers, printed ‘Orders of Service,’ additional vehicles for family and friends, your own choice of coffin and more –please ask or refer to our Pricing Plan – alternatively, phone Penny or Paul on Honiton (01404) 41424. You are also more than welcome to call into our Honiton Premises during office hours.

The Direct Cremation Service is fully inclusive of the Funeral Director’s charges AND the disbursements (statutory fees), necessary to carry out the funeral. There are numerous options and choices that can be added for the funeral and also, following the funeral including, providing ashes caskets, scattering tubes and any monumental masonry requirements. We would be happy to discuss these options at any stage.
