    The UK’s low price all-inclusive 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 of between £2000 and £6000 compared to traditional funeral costs.

    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, 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. These cost an additional £82 in total.

      Frequently asked questions:

      Who is Direct Cremation for?

      A direct cremation is perfect for those who wish to commemorate their loved one in their own way. Aside from the obvious savings, direct cremation offers you more flexibility, allowing you to pay a fair price for the services that are needed, whilst avoiding the costs for services that you feel are not appropriate for you.

      Many people wish to hold their own private ceremonies or purchase a memorial and they use the savings to do so. For others, it is the wishes of the deceased to hold a no fuss cremation. Sometimes it’s simply too hard to gather all those who wish to attend at a specific location at a fixed time. In this instance, direct cremations offer more flexibility to organize a private ceremony at a time and location of your choosing. A direct cremation is also perfect for individuals who have no close family or haven’t made a financial provision in their will.

      Perfect for all religious and non-religious ceremonies
      Those who want a no fuss cremation
      People who wish to have a celebration of life away from a crematorium
      Individuals who have no close family or haven’t made a financial provision
      Anyone wishing to save money on traditional funeral costs without compromising quality and personal service

      What services are provided and how much do they cost?

      Increasingly, some families wish to avoid many of the costs associated with a traditional funeral. This may be driven by:

      A financial need.
      A desire not to have a funeral service but a memorial service instead.
      A lack of religious commitment.
      A desire to spend the associated costs elsewhere.
      A private preference – such as made by the late David Bowie.

      In order to provide a service that meets such demands, we have developed the below low-cost funeral options.

      These can reduce the cost of a funeral by as much as £3,234 (Source: Sun Life Cost Of Dying Report 2020) compared to a traditional funeral.

      Additional services and options

      If you require the return of cremated remains within 28 days an additional fixed fee of £100 is applicable.

      If you with to collect the cremated remains, this can be done so free of charge.

      There is an additional Doctors Certificate Fee of £82 which is required only in England and Wales if the death is not referred to a coroner.
