Unattended Funeral

Unattended Funeral

An unattended funeral is where there is a cremation or burial without any family or friends present. 

We make sure that you are still treated with care & respect at all times and ensure no shortcuts are taken.

There are a growing number of Direct Cremation Van Operators. At G. Seller we will always use a hearse, no vans or any compromise on dignity & care. We will still send the necessary funeral attendants to convey you into the crematorium.

Our service also includes collecting your cremated remains from the crematorium. There are many options of where you can lay their cremated remains to rest. We have a dedicated showroom of options at our funeral home in Hinckley. Click here to view Cremated Remains Options.

A memorial service could be arranged at The Barsby Service Chapel, G. Seller, a local venue or Church at a later date for family and friends to come together. We can arrange this all for you and put together an itemised quotation.
