What Our Service Includes
Collection of the Deceased
We will collect the deceased from any hospital or public mortuary across England and Wales. If the deceased died at home, we may have to engage the service of a local Funeral Director to look after your loved one until the Doctor has completed the Medical Cause of Death Certificate and the necessary cremation paperwork. If we need to engage another Funeral Director, their fee will be an additional £250 to our charge.
We use a simple solid pine eco coffin. This style of coffin actively assists with the cremation process as it is unvarnished and free from any unnecessary chemicals. Coffins over 6ft by 22 inch will incur an additional charge of £195.
Care of the Deceased
The deceased will be cared for by our professional staff in our fully equipped mortuary facilities until the day of the cremation.
Direct Cremation with No Mourners
At the crematorium, there is no service beforehand, just a simple cremation. The cremation will take place within 21 days of the date of death. If you wish to be notified of the date of the Cremation, please let us know. Please note the Low Cost Cremation is responsible for selecting the time, date and location of the cremation.
Scattering of Cremated Remains
Your loved ones cremated remains will be scattered in the Garden of Rest at the Crematorium. If you would prefer to have the remains returned to yourself in a biodegradable box, this can be requested, an additional charge of £75 will apply for us to hand deliver the cremated remains to you, with in 28 days of the cremation. We also have a selection of alternative caskets and urns available for you to purchase, should you wish to have the ashes interred in a plot or scattered in the sea.
We ask for our invoice to be paid in full prior to the Cremation. Payment can be made by cheque, BACs transfer or debit/credit card. If you are claiming for assistance from the DWP, please let us know as soon as possible.
