What's included

The Pure Promise: Our Trust-Based Funeral Plan is 100% guaranteed

Our original Trust-Based Funeral Plan guarantees to pay for your cremation. The money you pay for this prepaid plan is placed into a secure, independently managed Trust. To find out more about our Trust, click here.

Our plan includes:

  • Collection from anywhere in mainland England, Wales and Scotland (excludes Islands)*, day or night
  • Transfer to the crematorium
  • A solid pine eco-coffin
  • Hand delivery of the ashes to any mainland address in England, Wales or Scotland within 21 days of the cremation. Or the option to scatter the ashes in the Garden of Remembrance
  • Doctors’ fees (if these apply)
  • Cremation fees for an unattended committal at the crematorium of our choice
  • Administration fees (£350) – the costs of setting up your plan

What you'll receive:

Within 14 days of purchase you’ll receive your document pack which contains:

  • A letter thanking you for choosing the Pure Cremation Pre-Paid Plan
  • A Plan Summary outlining exactly what is covered and a record of your payment(s)
  • A Record of Wishes with contact details for you and your next of kin and any special requests you may have made
  • A Plan Certificate with your unique plan number
  • A My Funeral Wishes card to carry in your purse or wallet so that everyone knows who to call when the time comes

(Scotland only - *If you live more than 2 hours drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh call to check that the likely timescales for our service meet your needs.).
If you change your mind within 30 days of purchase you will get a 100% refund of any payments made. Cancellation after this will result in a refund of the monies paid, minus the administration fee that applied at the time of purchase (currently £350).

Additional Services

We offer additional services that can be paid for when the times comes*.

Return of ashes within 21 days of the cremation is INCLUDED in our price, but please 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 England and Scotland border.

We are happy to arrange for a family member to collect ashes from our offices or from the crematorium itself if this is more convenient. We will not charge extra for this service.

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 farewell.

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.


For everybody we look after, we have the same elegant pine coffin design.

Please tell us if your loved one is heavier than 17 stone because we will need to provide additional staff to ensure a safe, prompt and dignified transfer to our care.

Very large clients (weight over 22 stone) or very tall clients (more than 6'6′′) may require a special order coffin, but we always review each case individually.


*Prepayment for additional services can not be accepted as these costs may increase by the time of passing.
We cannot guarantee that your chosen crematorium will be available and prices may rise.
XXL coffins have to be made to order and cannot be prepaid in advance.


We're setting the standard for this style of service:

About the Trust

Your money is safe

If you’ve opted to pay for a Trust-Based Funeral Plan, then your money will be placed into the secure, independently managed Trust. When the cremation is needed the Trust requires Pure Cremation Ltd to provide an invoice and proof of death before 2 Trustees sign to release funds to pay for the service you have requested.

The Pure Cremation Funeral Planning Trust was established in January 2016 and just like the market-leading funeral plan trusts it complies with the terms laid down by the Financial Services & Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) Order 2001 Chapter 14.

We're proud to be an FPA Registered provider so you can be confident that we do things properly, for example, the Trust's money is managed by one of the UK's leading investment managers, WH Ireland plc.

The Trustees have three principle responsibilities:

The Trust is managed by four Trustees, they are as follows:

Stephen Crewe

Consultant and Magistrate (independent trustee)

Karen Billington

Senior Associate solicitor at HCB Group (independent trustee)

Simon Gunson

Former R&D Vice President for FTSE 100 company (independent trustee)

Bryan Powell

A Director of Pure Cremation and Pure Cremation Funeral Planning Ltd

Funeral Planning Authority (FPA)

Pure Cremation is proud to be registered with the Funeral Planning Authority (FPA). With over 600,000 funerals taking place every year in the UK, it’s important that people that have purchased funeral plans get the funeral they have paid for when it is needed. The FPA was set up in 2002 to protect consumer interests in the UK funeral planning sector, overseeing the pre-paid funeral plan industry and ensuring the highest standards of professionalism are met.

Funeral plan providers register with the FPA to demonstrate their commitment to offering a quality service. The FPA’s Code of Practice contains guidance related to professional conduct, pledges to the customer and complaints procedures. It urges businesses to be courteous, conscientious, dignified and professional towards everyone.

The FPA Code of Practice also protects against unsolicited calls, emails and post, and states that customer information should always be kept confidential. It also outlines the funeral plan provider’s duty to provide a transparent service so you know you’re getting the service you paid for.
