How much does a funeral cost in the UK?

The average cost of a funeral in the UK is around £4,800. Most of this is usually for the funeral director’s fee, but things like flowers, cars and catering can also add to the cost. By focusing on the cremation only, our simple, affordable service allows you to plan a more personal memorial that’s right for you and your family.

What are your payment options?

We usually require payment in full upfront but please give us a call if you need to discuss alternatives.

How our cremation service works

Our simple cremation service (sometimes called ‘direct cremation’) covers everything from collecting your loved one to hand-delivering their ashes to your door – and you can arrange it all over the phone.


We collect your loved one

We collect your loved one from anywhere in England or Wales and transport them to our crematorium, working with doctors and nurses to deal with all the necessary paperwork.


We carry out a private cremation

Our highly-experienced team carry out a simple cremation without a funeral service, allowing you to spend more time planning a memorial with your family.


We hand-deliver their ashes

We deliver your loved one’s ashes in a simple, cardboard urn. You can then arrange your own, personal memorial service before displaying the ashes or scattering them at sea.

Every life is unique. Why should funerals be any different?

Our simple cremation service gives you the freedom to remember your loved one’s life in your own way. After receiving the ashes, you could hire the town hall, take a family trip to the beach or you could even host a celebration in your own garden. It really is up to you.

“Mum would have hated a formal funeral, so we had a family picnic in her favourite park and raised a glass of wine in her honour.”

Say goodbye your way

Once we’ve returned your loved one’s ashes, you’re free to celebrate their life anytime, anywhere. Here are some suggestions to get you started:

Hire out the town hall

Get family and friends together at the local town hall or community centre and fill the walls with amazing memories.

Host a barbecue

Put on a picnic or barbecue in your garden for a relaxed, informal memorial and raise a glass in their honour.

Spend a day by the sea

Take a walk along their favourite beach, share stories, and light a few fireworks to send them off in style.

Have a family feast

Take everyone out for brunch, lunch or dinner at one of your loved one’s favourite restaurants.

Make it a party

Host a house party or head out on the town and sing and dance the night away to their favourite party anthems.

Do nothing at all

If a memorial isn’t right for you, you could simply scatter your loved one’s ashes or display them at home.
