Direct Burial Service

Above And Beyond Funeral can arrange for a direct burial service on the families’ behalf. A direct burial service is a burial option in which the body is buried in the days immediately after the death and without a formal funeral service at the grave side or venue before the burial.

Although direct burials are not common, our staff ensure that each burial is conducted in a timely and professional manor. Our dedicated Funeral Directors arrange all the requirements for a direct burial service on your behalf, including the purchase of the grave, the relevant government paper work and transport to your chosen cemetery. Our Funeral Directors will then work with the cemetery staff to ensure that the burial takes place in a dignified and compassionate manor.

If you are interested in the Direct Burial service but would like to hold a formal funeral service as well, the service would likely take the form of a memorial service. Memorial Services can take place immediately after the burial, at the same time as the burial, but at a different location, such as a church, chapel or alternative venue or sometime in the future.

If you would like to arrange a direct burial service, or have a no obligation discussion with one of our Funeral Directors about your options, please contact us at any time.
