Simpler send-offs. Brighter goodbyes.
Arrange a direct cremation from £800, with the help of our award-winning team. So you can say goodbye at a time and place that feel right.
It’s a funeral done your way.
Direct cremation is simply a cremation without a funeral service. It’s fast becoming the choice of families who want to decide how and where they say goodbye to their loved one, at a time that’s right for them.
Do it your way
Create the send-off you want, when you’re ready. With more time to grieve, plan, and get everyone together.
Cut the extra fuss and burden of a traditional funeral. Things like a hearse, an organist, or arranging a procession.
We’re 4x cheaper than the average traditional UK funeral, saving you thousands.
Everything you need, from £800.
With specialist support throughout.
We arrange the cremation
Wherever you are in England and Wales, we’ll bring your loved one to our chapel of rest. Then complete all the paperwork and arrange the cremation.
On the day
We’ll transport them to a local crematorium and carry out a cremation you don’t attend. We’re always available if you need a chat.
After the cremation
We can scatter the ashes, you can collect them from the crematorium, or we can hand-deliver the ashes to you, anywhere in the UK, for £50.
Choose what’s right for you
We specialise in direct cremations because – unlike traditional funerals – they don’t restrict you to a formal service at the crematorium. It means we can support you to choose the send-off that’s right for you and the person you love.
An urn to reflect them
From scattering urns for releasing the ashes at sea, to ceramic display urns for keeping them close – we have the perfect choice for whatever you decide to do.
For releasing in water
A memorial tree that lasts for generations
Choose a memorial tree from our collection to plant in your loved one’s name. A beautiful tribute that keeps their memory alive.
A specialist to guide you
With Farewill you’ll speak with the same person throughout – a friendly specialist who can offer their support, ideas, or simply their ear, anytime.

A send-off that’s...just right
We believe everybody should choose how they say goodbye. Whether big or small. Traditional or informal. A gathering or a simple tribute.
My sister loved her garden, so we got the family together to plant a rose bush with her ashes.
Farewill introduced me to a local celebrant. They helped us arrange the perfect celebration of our dad’s life, at the football club he loved.
We created an online tribute page where we shared photos and memories of my mum, and fundraised for her favourite charity.
Why families are choosing Farewill
My grandmother wanted a simple send off with her ashes scattering at her chosen location and only the closest family and friends present. Farewill offered us the perfect way to carry out her wishes.
Abi, funeral customer
The service was excellent and you would not get better by going to a high street funeral director and paying 2 or 3 times as much. We couldn’t have asked for a better send off for our brother.
Frankie, funeral customer
Serving England, Wales and Scotland

The difference between a standard and direct cremation
A standard cremation includes a traditional funeral service at a crematorium. A direct cremation is a cremation you do not attend. The crematorium will take your loved one into their care, perform the cremation and bring the ashes back to you.Read more
What can you do with the ashes after a cremation?
After receiving the ashes from a cremation, many families arrange their own personal memorial service. You’re then free to display or scatter the ashes anywhere you wish – or you could even create a series of mementos for your family.Read more
Where can you scatter ashes in the UK?
Ashes can be scattered almost anywhere in the UK, as long as you have permission from the landowner first. If you’re thinking about scattering ashes at sea or on a river, you don’t need a permit, but you should follow the Environment Agency’s guidance.Read more
