Cost of Cremation

At Pure Cremation we don't believe in hidden cremation costs so we've made the pricing of our Direct Cremation funerals as simple as possible. There are no hidden extras.

The cost of our direct cremation is £1,195 and includes collecting the deceased from anywhere in England or Wales from a hospital or Coroner's mortuary, a simple coffin, storage until the day of the cremation, crematorium and doctors' fees (where required). This also includes the cremated remains being scattered at the crematorium, held for you to collect or returned by hand by one of our team.

The cremation will take place at one of our network of Crematoria. Should you wish to witness the cremation this can be arranged at additional cost.

If you would like the ashes returned to you there are two options - they can be returned by us within 28 days of the cremation for no additional cost or you can specify a day and time for their return for £150. We no longer use couriers for returning cremated remains for two reasons, first we found that on occasions they were not taking enough care of the ashes and secondly they have now all added cremated remains to their list of prohibited items. This means that if the ashes are lost not only will they not be liable for compensation but the could take action against the sender.

If death has occured at home or in a nursing home then an additional charge will be made and whilst we have our own duty team available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week we may need to ask a local funeral director to carry out the initial removal for us.

We have a special process to support clients who make a claim for DWP help with funeral costs. A member of the Pure Cremation team will guide you through this process and explain how we might be able to help you, even without a deposit.

Please tell us as early as possible if you intend to make a claim so that we can prepare the correct style of invoice and send it to the right person in the DWP - this will help speed up the processing of your claim.
