One Fixed Price Including All Cremation Fees
Direct cremation is offered to answer the specific requests of families who choose the most simple, dignified and economical means of arranging their loved-one’s funeral.
This is a lower-cost option and practical alternative when compared to a traditional funeral service.
The Deceased is first cremated without any initial service or procession.
A memorial service can then be held, if desired, following the cremation, and at a time, date and location more convenient, and perhaps more fitting.
What our Direct Cremation Package Includes;

Get help with funeral costs
You could get a Funeral Expenses Payment (also called a Funeral Payment) if you get certain benefits and need help to pay for a funeral you’re arranging.
* There maybe additional Doctors fees of £164.00 required, which we are unable to confirm until we have collected your loved one.
If you require any further specific information regarding assistance with funeral payments we will have happy to discuss with you.
In order for us to keep our costs down we do require cleared funds three days prior to the funeral taking place. (Excluding DWP Applications)
