I want to arrange a direct cremation for myself, but I don't know who to choose. I'm worried about what would happen if the company went bust and my family was left to arrange things, which is what I'm trying to avoid. Please can anyone recommend reputable companies? Many thanks

    We do not know the time or circumstances of our death and although we can express our wishes we cannot dictate something which may not be practical.
    All you can do is identify a local Funeral Director and seek his advice and then leave details alongside your will on your mantelpiece. 
    Never pay on an estimated bill

    Why not make your wishes known to those who would arrange it, and leave an appropriate amount in a bank account to pay for it?
