Pure Cremation® is proud to be the UK's leading provider of Direct Cremation. No Funeral and Cremation Only.

This is the simplest of all funerals and meets the needs of a growing number of people who want a respectful direct cremation arranged without any fuss and leaving them free to say farewell how, where and when is right for them..

Our commitment to real choice means we are one of very few specialist funeral firms in the UK prepared to offer a cremation only funeral. In fact we're the only firm that 100% specialises in Direct Cremation. We've even created a great value Direct Cremation Pre-Paid Funeral Plan so that you can fix the costs today and get on with enjoying life. See our Planning Ahead pages for more details and request an information pack.

Our Direct Cremation service covers the whole of England and Wales. If you need our services now the total cost will be £1,195 and includes all the 3rd party fees.

Our price includes the following as standard:

  • Transfer from a hospital or coroner's mortuary during working hours
  • Placing in a suitable, simple coffin
  • Transport to the crematorium in a suitable vehicle 
  • Cremation fees and doctors' fees where they apply
  • Cremation at a time we choose with no funeral service at one of our network of crematoria (not your local crematorium) You are welcome to be present at the committal if you wish for a modest additional cost.
  • Return of the cremated remains (ashes) by hand within 28 days of the cremation.

Our price of £1,195 is around £2,500 less than a traditional funeral and by separating the cremation from the celebration of life you have the benefit of being able to do something much more personal at a place, day and time of your choosing.
