Cremation

Cremation is increasingly popular, generally considered to be more environmentally friendly than burial and provides many more options with respect to your loved one’s final resting place.

In order for a cremation service for your loved one to proceed you will need to provide various documents which we are on hand to help you with.

A cremation service can be religious, secular or you may choose to not to have a service. A time slot (normally 45 minutes) will be allocated for your loved one’s funeral and it should not impact either the funeral before or after.  Should you require a longer funeral this can be arranged but will incur an additional crematorium fee.

Alternatively you can hold the service in a different location such as a church and follow this with a crematorium ceremony.  We can help you find a suitable person to conduct the ceremony or you are welcome to arrange your own minister or officiant.

The last part of a service is called the committal. There are a few options related to the order of events at this stage of the service. We will be happy to help and advise you to ensure that family and friends can say goodbye in a way which reflects you and your loved one's wishes.

After the cremation service has taken place we will be available to talk you through the options to choose a suitable memorial for your loved one and lay their ashes to rest.  Popular choices include a garden of remembrance and in a churchyard or cemetery family grave.

Terms and Conditions

We understand how difficult a time it can be to arrange the funeral of a loved one, as well as considering covering the costs.

In recognition of this we will never ask for any type of deposit or ‘upfront fees’ before a funeral service takes place. We allow those using our services the time to arrange your finances, providing a detailed estimate of the funeral cost before the service takes place. This allows you to focus on the funeral ceremony, without a need to pay any deposit or upfront fees.

We will write to the family before the funeral confirming all dates, times and details of the arrangements and include a fully itemised estimate with the confirmations.

We do not require any type of deposit or ‘upfront’ payment. An invoice will be sent 7 days after the funeral.

Our payment terms are 28 days from the date of invoice.

Please see our pricing for more specific information.

If you have any concerns financially or would need extra time to pay for a funeral, please contact us, as we are always willing to help in any way possible

Testimonials

Thank you for the way in which you conducted the cremation of Les, I can honestly say that family and friends alike were very impressed with the service. In fact, from the time I first spoke to you on the phone I knew I had made the right choice and I thank you for making a difficult time as easy as possible for us all.

Just wanted to thank you for the fantastic service that you have given to my children with regards to their father, who’s funeral took place today at Kingsdown Crematorium.

My eldest daughter Lisa had said what a lovely person you were and how you had made her feel so at ease when she initially spoke with you. When I first met you a day or so later, I saw for myself exactly what she meant. You were so welcoming, so calming and so professional in all you did.

When I came to the chapel of rest, again you were welcoming and so understanding and again today at the funeral.

May I personally say a big thank you for the heart-warming service you gave.
