Additional Services

Not everyone passes away in a hospital and we offer prompt care for you and your loved one whether this is at home, a care home or in a hospice setting.

Call us any time, day or night, to discuss what happens next. We will come as soon as possible and you’ll get a clear indication of our team’s likely arrival time. It is always helpful to know whether your loved one is upstairs or not, and whether they are more than 15 stone in weight as we might need to send additional staff for safe and dignified transfer.

Pure Cremation has the expertise, equipment and systems to ensure all of the legal requirements for a cremation are met.

We work with hundreds of different GP practices across England and Wales each year to achieve this quickly and smoothly. Doctors’ cremation certificates are not required for Scotland.

Add £250

Return of ashes within 21 days of the cremation is INCLUDED in our price, but please do let us know if you have planned a scattering or memorial service sooner than this.

You can specify a day and time for the return of your loved-one’s ashes, including evenings and weekends.

Add £150

Please note that this service is not available for ashes crossing the border between England and Scotland.

We are happy to arrange, if more appropriate, for a family member to collect ashes from our offices or from the cremation venue itself for no extra cost.

Even though there is no funeral service, we offer the opportunity to spend up to 20 minutes with your choice of music saying a private goodbye.

We want to emphasise that a Pure Cremation is a distinctive service, not a cheap funeral… so there are some restrictions.

Up to 12 people can attend and you can choose either:

A committal at our own Charlton Park Crematorium in Hampshire at a time to suit you, including evenings and weekends.

A committal at one of our carefully chosen venues at 9 am only.

Add £200

We have the same, simple pine coffin design for everyone we look after.

Please tell us if your loved one is heavier than 17 stone as we will need to provide extra staff for safe, prompt and dignified transfer into our care, particularly from an upstairs location.

Very large clients (weight over 22 stone) or very tall clients (more than 6’6″) are likely to require a special order coffin, but we always review each case individually.

Add £300 if a special order coffin is required
