Direct cremations allow you to provide a quiet and dignified farewell for your loved one without the concern over a ceremony or service. At Bonner Funeral Directors, we offer affordable cremations that mean friends and family can have the freedom to say goodbye in their own way and in their own time.

Serving the communities in and around Essex – including Ongar, Shelley and Marden Ash – we ensure your loved one is treated with care and compassion when they are placed in our stewardship. The cremation takes place at our local crematorium, unattended, and following this the ashes are returned to you.
