Direct Cremation

Crematorium

The Right Option for you?
For those wanting either the most cost effective or straightforward option, Direct Cremation may be the best option for you.

Price: £1,049

If a family or friends want to celebrate the life of the departed individual aside from a chapel or perhaps prefer a simple cremation but considering a memorial service elsewhere at a later date, Direct Cremation will be the best choice. At the same time, you benefit from eliminating extra costs that a traditional funeral would entail and only paying for the care, transportation and cremation.

Direct cremation is a simple, dignified option in which your loved one is cremated without a funeral service or ceremony. Sometimes known as an unattended cremation, by removing the service, the family of the deceased or those responsible for arrangements can make substantial savings of between £2000 and £6000 compared to traditional funeral costs.

Our lowest possible cost "Direct Option" is a cremation without a service time or attendance, which includes the collection of the deceased in a suitable vehicle, the provision of a standard coffin with four handles and a name plate and the cremated remains scattered in the Garden of Remembrance at the crematorium or returned to you within 28 days anywhere in mainland UK for an additional charge.

Doctor’s fees for cremation papers are payable in England & Wales if the death is not referred to a coroner. These cost an additional £164 in total.
