A modern alternative to a traditional funeral
Arrange a Direct Cremation with us for £1,495
A simple, dignified cremation without the ceremony and costs associated with traditional funerals. Our most affordable type of service, popular with customers who don’t want the fuss and expense of a traditional service.
With a direct cremation friends and family gain the freedom to arrange their own personal memorial, separate to the cremation; this allows you to say goodbye exactly when and how you choose. It’s a modern alternative to the traditional funeral and increasingly growing in popularity. We have been offering these since 2007, probably before even the term was phrased.
What is included?
The cost of our unattended funerals includes collection and care of the deceased, cremation and doctors fees (if necessary), a simple eco-friendly coffin and easy options to complete the necessary paperwork in-person or online.
Direct Plus Attended - £1,895
Includes all of the above plus attendance of a funeral director and a witnessed direct cremation with no officiant or celebrant but where up to 8 persons can witness the committal for 15 minutes at the crematorium at either 8.40 am or 9.20 am including one piece of music.
