We are a family-owned Funeral Directors and family is at the heart of all that we do. Our services are carefully thought out to ensure that your family isn’t placed under financial pressure. We offer different types of cremation so that you can choose the best one for your family and your circumstances.

Simple Cremation Funeral Service

A simple cremation is an affordable cremation giving you a small and simple service that allows you to honour your loved one. Simple cremation is a cheaper option than traditional cremation, and we manage this by booking off-peak times and days to give you the service that you wish, without incurring extra costs at this time.

Traditional Cremation Service

A traditional cremation allows you to celebrate the life of your loved one in a more conventional way. This includes services such as having the cremation at a time and date to suit you and your mourners, a family car to follow the hearse, service booklets, and collection of donations. We will spend time discussing the different options with you so that you can choose the best one for you and your family.

How long is the cremation service?

The length of a cremation will vary according to what you want the service to include. Some people like to have readings or music that are meaningful and personal, whilst others want their cremation to be brief and simple. We will spend time with you discussing what you would like so that your cremation is a reflection of the wishes and beliefs of your loved one. In general, cremation is shorter than a traditional burial service, usually around 30 minutes.

What happens at a cremation service?

We will explain fully what to expect when we discuss your cremation service with you. If you have chosen a traditional cremation you will follow the hearse in a mourners’ limousine to the crematorium, where the coffin will be carried by our pallbearers into the crematorium. For a simple cremation, you will meet the hearse at the crematorium, before following the coffin inside. The service will depend upon what you have chosen, but will usually include a eulogy, or a reading, before the ending of the service, when the committal begins. The mourners will leave at this point, and place flowers, or attend a wake.

What is the cost of cremation?

We aim to keep the cost of cremation at an affordable level. Our simple cremation starts at £1699, whilst our traditional cremation starts at £2395. Please discuss with us the best service for you.
