The UK’s Affordable Price cremation without a funeral service

  • 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. The SunLife Cost of Dying Report 2024 advises that the average cost of a basic funeral in the UK was £4,141.
  • 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 from a hospital or mortuary, 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.

Cremation Experience Associate

An Affordable Funerals direct cremation includes the deceased being cremated at one of our own Award-winning, state-of-the-art Memoria Crematoria that are strategically located across the United Kingdom. Memoria Crematoria are located in beautiful settings, featuring lakes, rolling landscapes and seasonal flowers. Conveyance of the deceased’s coffin will take place on the morning of the cremation and will be greeted by a Cremation Experience Associate who is dedicated to overseeing all aspects of the day.

The Cremation Experience Associate will follow the coffin into the Crematorium chapel to peaceful soothing music for the coffin to be placed on the catafalque. After a short period of time the Cremation Experience Associate will bow their head in honour of the deceased for the curtains to be then slowly and beautifully closed.The coffin will then be taken in to the area for the coffin to be placed in the cremator which the Cremation Experience Associate will supervise. Once the cremation is complete, the ashes will be carefully packaged into a Memoria eco box ready for collection by a family member or our own private driver for delivery.
