A Little About Us

“We are not just a collection service – we care”

Our Funeral Service is here to assist you at the most difficult of times and to offer you advice in a practical but compassionate manner.

As we are all aware the cost of a funeral is rising year on year but we can help by offering our Direct Cremation service to lay your loved one/friend to rest in a dignified way but at a low budget cost avoiding added stress caused by worrying about the cost of the funeral.

Our funeral arrangers are fully experienced at caring for the deceased and the families left behind. The transportation, care and cremation of the deceased is carried out using professional vehicles and uniformed staff.

It is sometimes difficult to get everyone together for a funeral service due the transient nature of family life and work commitments, not everyone can get time off, so why not have the memorial service at a time to suit everyone?

Additional Charges

Where bariatric (obese) factors are present we reserve the right to either decline or withdraw our services at any time.  Additional charges may be made for the use of additional personnel, larger vehicles and the cost of a larger coffin (over 6’ x 22″)

Price on application.

In case of sudden unexplained death or accident (police involvement) and also if the deceased was not under a Doctor’s care within the last 14 days the death may be referred to the Coroner so collection from a private home or care home must first be carried out, we will arrange this through our network of independent funeral directors if need be to enable the doctors to carry out further checks.

(Estimate £80 to £260.00) Depending on length of accommodation hire due to availability of the doctors, “if you choose a local funeral director it will most probably be much more”

Where necessary the deceased may have to be transferred locally to the Coroner’s mortuary (the Coroner’s office / State take care of this part of the cost of moving)

Transfer of the Deceased from a place other than mainland England and Wales

Frequently Asked Questions About Cremations If you would like to discuss any questions with us directly, please give us a call on our 24 hour helpline at 01427 612992

Is This a Communal Cremation?

No. Each person is cremated strictly individually in accordance with UK law.

Can I Collect the Ashes?

Ashes can be collected from the crematorium, but due to locality we offer to return these directly to your home address.

Why is this so inexpensive?

We choose the time of day for the committal to take place which suits both us and the Crematorium of our choice with no family or friends in attendance thus ensuring a lower fee.

What kind of Shroud or Coffin do you Provide?

We include our quality Bamboo Shroud, alternatively you can choose a plain cardboard coffin by adding £50 or upgrade to a simple traditional shaped wood effect coffin for an additional £75. These prices are only for a 6′ x 22″ coffin, for larger coffins please ask for a quote.

Do you re-use the coffin or shroud?


Can I attend the funeral?

No. not at this fee, if you choose direct cremation then no one can attend, If you wish to attend then the fee will be certainly higher, please call for a quotation.
