      Frequently asked questions

      How much are cremation charges?

      Cremation prices in the UK vary from £364 to £1,070 and with a typical average fee of £850.

      Cremation fees are included on our Direct Cremation and Virtual Service. We only charge you the fee that is charged to us by the crematorium of your choice on our Intimate Family Service, Celebration of Life and Traditional package.

      Additional services and options

      Some services require Doctor’s Certification Fees (these are required in England and Wales only when the Coroner is not involved) they are payable at the standard fee set by Government. Two certificates are usually required costing £82.00 each (currently only one is charged for) and are not included in the quoted price.

      Cremated remains (ashes) can be returned to you by hand and within 28 days of the date of the cremation. This service is available anywhere in mainland UK for an additional charge of £100.

      The prices quoted above are the totals needed to satisfy your selected option. Normally there would be nothing extra to pay.

      The only circumstances where the additional cost would be incurred is if removal is needed from either a private residence or a nursing home or the deceased requires a coffin larger than 6’ 3” x 24” (1.91m x 61cm). In both cases, an additional £250.00 would be charged.

      The Traditional option can include a hearse, limousines, a chapel of rest, a selected type of coffin and anything else you deem appropriate. Memoria’s principle of affordable quality still applies, we believe our traditional range offers excellent value against the rest of the market.
