Doctor’s fees where required
Cremation fees for an unattended committal at our Charlton Park Crematorium or another carefully selected venue that we choose
A solid pine eco-coffin (or suitable alternative)

Administration fee of £350 to set up your plan, including unlimited updates
Each funeral plan includes everything needed for a simple unattended cremation, but on rare occasions families ask for the urgent return of ashes or to be present at the crematorium.
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 for an additional fee of

Pure Cremation is registered with the Funeral Planning Authority (FPA), which was set up in 2002 to protect consumer interests in the UK funeral planning sector. It oversees the prepaid funeral plan industry and ensures that high standards of professionalism are met.
We also protect your money in other ways, depending on the type of funeral plan you have purchased:
Trust Based Plan
Just like other big funeral plan providers in the UK, we use a Trust to safeguard the funds needed to meet funeral expenses.
If you’ve opted for our Trust-Based plan, whether you’ve paid in a single lump sum or over a fixed number of instalments, then your money will be placed into a secure, independently managed Trust.
When the money is needed for a cremation, the Trust requires an invoice, proof of death and 2 Trustee signatures to allow the funds to be released to pay for it.
We’re very proud to say that all of the fees within the plan are fully covered by the Pure Guarantee so your family will never be asked to pay a penny more to carry out your wishes, so long as you have paid in full or made at least 24 monthly payments.
Now you don’t need to worry about any increases in cremation fees or the cost of the doctor's certificates – we’ll take care of everything.
If your family wishes to arrange an attended committal or chooses priority return of ashes these can be requested and paid for at time of need.
If the current service provider (Pure Cremation Ltd) goes out of business the Trust will appoint a new provider and write to each plan holder to offer two options:
The Trust holding the funds is not a business, it is a completely separate organisation dedicated to the care of plan holders’ funds. The FPA has registered the Pure Cremation Funeral Plan because it meets their exacting standards for the protection of plan holders’ interests.
