Real experiences, real feedback

From the moment I contacted Earth Direct, their compassionate staff handled every detail with sensitivity and professionalism. Their respectful treatment of my husband brought me great comfort. I'm grateful for the care they provided and highly recommend Earth Direct to anyone in need of their services.

After reaching out I had one of the most heart warming and caring conversations with Kevin Hartley who went to enormous lengths to design for us a funeral that respected everything mum and I stood for. The relief for me was beyond words, at the end of the day I found enormous peace in mum's passing knowing everything was being done for the right reasons and in the right way.
Forever thankful
