Direct 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 DIRECT 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 a direct 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 Direct 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.
