A funeral without the service

A direct cremation is a modern alternative to a traditional cremation funeral. The cremation takes place completely separately from the personal farewell, allowing families to create their own special remembrance in their own time. It’s perfect for people who don’t like funerals.

 

Families tell us that creating a beautiful funeral with the ashes urn or a favourite photograph as the focal point is less daunting and more accessible.


Is a Pure cremation really a 'less expensive' alternative to a traditional funeral?

We believe wholeheartedly in helping consumers make informed decisions. In some of our adverts we make claims that the type of fuss free direct cremation plans that we offer are a ‘less expensive’ alternative and we want you to have information about those.


Based on the SunLife Cost of Dying Report 2022 (page 10), direct cremations are, on average, the least expensive option when compared with traditional cremation and burial alternatives. Traditional funerals with a burial had the highest average cost at £4,927 in 2021 followed by a traditional cremation at an average cost of £3,765 and finally a direct cremation at an average cost of £1,647. This highlights the variance in cost across different services and clearly shows direct cremation as a ‘less expensive’ option. The full report with detailed cost comparisons can be accessed here.


The SunLife Cost of Dying Report is a respected third-party publication that is released each year and is based on data gathered from consumers and funeral professionals. There is no connection between the authors of this report and Pure Cremation.
