Direct Cremation £1600.00 Total Cost.
This is our Lowest Cost Cremation.
Due to numerous enquiries into this option we need to confirm this price. Many people have said other funeral directors have quoted similar prices but then hit them with unexpected additional costs at this very sensitive time. This WILL NOT happen with us with any LOCAL in hours collection. Please ring and speak with us to confirm this price.
(Note: There may be an additional charge for an oversize coffin)
“Direct Cremation” is a term given where there is no service or attendance by family or friends at the Crematorium, instead the deceased is taken to a Crematorium of the Funeral Director’s choice on a date and time chosen by the Funeral Director.
Later the cremated remains are returned to the family. A form of Memorial Service may be held by family and friends separately. Please call us for details.
The normal procedure is for a deposit to be paid (around 50%) at the time of making the arrangements. The final account will be sent shortly after the funeral date and we would appreciate settlement within one month.
THE DIGNIFIED LOW COST OPTION has to be paid in full prior to the funeral date.
If you need help with the cost of a funeral you may be entitled to a ‘Social Fund Funeral Payment’ from the Department of Works and Pensions. Please see www.gov.uk/funeralpayments, call 0345 606 0265 or visit your local Jobcentre Plus for advice.
