What is a no fuss, direct cremation?
This type of service takes a variety of different names in the UK;
- direct cremation
- no service cremation
- cremation with ceremony
- cheapest funeral
- a no fuss funeral
It is the most practical, legal type of a funeral available, removing the fuss, stress and financial burden of a traditional service.
It helps to separate the cremation from the ceremony, allowing you to focus on remembering them in your own way.
It removes the rushed nature of a traditional funeral. As the committal takes place without your attendance, you can arrange a personal goodbye at your own pace with no time restrictions.
We can also help to arrange a lasting memorial item such as jewellery containing your loved ones ashes or created from their fingerprints.
Our no-fuss funeral cost of £895 includes (please be aware of additional costs below);
- Bringing a loved one into our care from anywhere in England or Wales.
- Qualified advice and assistance to gain a death certificate and understanding the Coroner’s procedures.
- The arrangement, assistance and completion of all cremation paperwork from the comfort of your own home.
- A simple coffin made from sustainable materials.
- The highest level of care for your loved one at our funeral home until the time of cremation.
- Dignified conveyance of your loved one to our selected crematorium.
- The collection and storage of ashes. We can arrange a courier delivery for £25 or hand deliver ashes to your home for an additional £145.
- Cremation fee for a non-attended cremation service at our choice of time and location.
You can attend the committal for an additional £900 includes a celebrant and music for a short service.
Possible additional costs
The above cost does not include the completion of doctor's cremation certificates.
These certificates are not applicable if the death is under investigation by HM Coroner.
Other direct cremation providers have an all-inclusive price that includes these certificates however, as not all funerals require this paperwork we find it unfair to charge everyone.
Due to the doctor's paperwork needing to be completed by the last doctor who attended your loved one, he/she will need to be kept local to the doctor for them to be able to attend and complete the necessary forms.
If the death has occurred at their home or nursing home we will arrange for a local funeral director to provide the initial care of your loved one.
Visiting our chapel
Most hospitals have facilities to allow you to visit your loved one but they are not able to provide a level of care equal to a funeral directors.
If you wish to visit your loved one we can arrange this at one of our private chapels of rest.
Additional care and hygienic treatment will be needed to dress your loved one in their own clothes and present in our chapel.
Bespoke size coffins
For clients requiring a coffin over 6'2" tall or 22" width and/or weighing in excess of 20 stone we require additional costs due to staffing needs and bespoke size coffins.
We require this information during our initial conversations to ensure the correct costs are invoiced. If we are not notified prior to the initial collection it may result in additional fees being charged.
