David Bowie - The Icon Trend Setter of Direct Cremation
At the beginning of October the BBC ran a documentary that covered the rising costs of funerals.
Many families find themselves having to arrange a family funeral with little experience and, in doing so rely on the expertise of their local Funeral Home.
Back In January 2016 David Bowie arranged for the simplest funeral without family or friends present. He was cremated in secret after telling family that he simply did not wish to have a funeral service. Lia Jane of Peaceful Hearts is happy to encourage families to follow the wishes of their family as the UK begins to see a very sharp rise in simple funerals by way of either a direct cremation of a simple woodland burial.
David wasn’t forgotten, how could we ever forget such an amazing icon – his family celebrated his life at a private venue after his unattended cremation. By separating the actual cremation from the farewell life celebration the family are able to organise a far more personal memorial service, ash scattering or life celebration at their own pace and, at a time that feels right an his life was celebrated
