‹ Funeral Services


Cremation is an alternative to burial when a dearly departed loved one passes away. The most widely chosen option in Ireland is still burial of a loved one, although cremation is increasing in popularity. There is no real cost difference between burial and cremation.

Should you choose a cremation, Ollie Burns & Sons Funeral Directors will liaise fully with the crematorium of your choice to put arrangements in place.

You will normally have the choice of a full service or a shorter committal service. The full service would typically be chosen by families who do not wish for a separate funeral service to take place (i.e. a funeral service in the local Church or Funeral Home before cremation). Either way, we will work with you to ensure that your personal wishes are carried out.

If you wish to arrange a cremation you can contact us and we will ensure that all matters regarding the cremation of a loved one from completing the necessary documentation to ensuring that all necessary information is gathered to make certain that the arrangements required are dealt with appropriately.

We will also take care of the Cremation Forms on your behalf and avoid unnecessary distress while you are bereaving your loved one.

Cremation offers every family the option of collecting the ashes or alternatively we can deliver them to you which can be kept, buried at the family grave/plot, placed in the Garden of Remembrance or scattered privately at your loved one’s favourite place.

If you would like to transport the ashes overseas for burial or scattering, we will advise you on the requirements of airlines and individual countries.

We are ideally located to Ireland’s newest crematorium, Shannon Crematorium, if needs be but the choice is yours. As professional Funeral Directors, we are satisfied with whatever decision you make.
