A direct cremation is where the cremation itself takes place completely separately from the personal farewell or service.
It is a modern alternative to a traditional funeral that gives you the freedom to hold a more personal farewell how and when you choose. Some of our families use the ashes urn as their focal point for remembrance, whilst others use a favourite photograph or visit a special location.
It couldn't be easier to arrange a direct cremation funeral with us! Our standard service has everything you need for a simple cremation, with the same affordable price across the whole of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and mainland Scotland.

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.
While there is no additional charge for transferring ashes across the England, Scotland or Northern Ireland borders, you should allow additional time to arrange and complete this.

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.
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.

Please note that this service is not available for ashes crossing the border between England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
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 formal service, you can arrange to spend up to 20 minutes saying a private farewell at one of the crematorium venues we use, accompanied by your choice of music.
We want to emphasise that a Pure Cremation is a distinctive service, not a cheap funeral, so there are some restrictions.
A maximum of 12 people may attend.
Our own Charlton Park Crematorium in Hampshire offers times to suit you, including evenings and weekends - for an extra £250.
Committals at other venues are only available 9am Mon – Fri - for an extra £400.
