How our direct cremation works

1

We collect your loved one

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

2

We carry out the cremation

Our highly-experienced team carry out a direct cremation without a funeral service, so you can spend more time planning a memorial with your family.

3

We hand-deliver their ashes

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

Our price includes everything you need

We’ll help you save up to £3,000 compared to the average cost of a funeral in the UK.

  • Transport to collect your loved one
  • Handling all paperwork
  • An unattended cremation
  • Hand-delivery of ashes in a simple urn
  • Our guide to help you plan a memorial service
Other costs you might need to pay:
Doctor’s fees
All doctors charge a standard fee for filling out paperwork to confirm the cause of death. If a post-mortem happens, you don't need to pay this fee.
£82
Complex collection
This is a collection from anywhere that doesn't have a mortuary (like a residence or nursing home), so we need to send a team out right away.
£250

We usually take payment in full upfront. But if you need help covering the cost, we’re happy to chat through alternatives.

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:

Scattered at sea

Visit their favourite beach or beauty spot and scatter their ashes into the wind.

Make it a party

Get family and friends together and fill the time with amazing memories.

Host a picnic

Put on a picnic spread for a relaxed memorial, and raise a glass in their honour.

Have a family feast

Take everyone out for brunch, lunch or dinner at one of their favourite places.

Commemorative jewellery

Turn their ashes into a ring, cufflinks or a sparkling pendant that you can keep forever.

Do nothing at all

If a memorial isn’t right for you, you could scatter their ashes or display them at home.

I never knew there were companies out there as professional and caring during our sad times as Farewill. The whole process from start to finish was flawless.
