Unattended Cremation

*PLEASE NOTE – DUE TO THE EFFECT COVID-19 IS HAVING ON THE WAY IN WHICH FUNERALS ARE BEING ARRANGED, THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASED REQUEST FOR UNATTENDED CREMATION. THEREFORE, THIS CAN MEAN A LONGER WAIT UNTIL THE FUNERAL IS CARRIED OUT DUE TO THERE ONLY BEING ONE TIME ALLOCATED PER DAY AT THE CREMATORIUM FOR THESE REDUCED PRICE CREMATIONS*
When a funeral service is not required and there will be no relatives or friends in attendance and no visiting of the deceased in our chapel of rest, we can offer an unattended cremation service with our same care and dignity to a specification as follows:

OUR SERVICES:

  • Provision of the funeral director’s services.
  • Meeting with you at our office during normal hours to discuss arrangements and complete statutory forms. This can be done by telephone or email and post if preferred.
  • Conveying the deceased from a local address during normal office hours to our premises with up to 20 running miles allowed and care until the cremation.*
  • Provision of a simple wood effect coffin.
  • Provision of a suitable vehicle and staff to the crematorium.
  • Return of the ashes to you in a temporary container (collected from our office or delivered locally), or scattering at the crematorium if preferred. (There is an additional charge of £41 made by the crematorium if the ashes scattering is to be witnessed).

INCLUDING THIRD PARTY PAYMENTS ON YOUR BEHALF:

  • Crematorium fee for an unattended committal.
  • Doctor’s fees for statutory medical certificates (if required).
The cost of our Unattended Cremation service is £1,336
*PLEASE NOTE. If we are asked to bring the deceased into our care outside of usual office hours (Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm excluding Bank Holidays), an additional charge of £145 will be added.
Payment for this funeral service is required IN FULL prior to the funeral taking place.
