Direct Cremation from £1,595.00

A Direct Cremation is becoming an increasingly popular option for a funeral service for many families, this can be a more affordable option when compared to a Traditional funeral, but also because many people plan this service prior to their death as they feel it will cause ‘less fuss’.

Whatever your reasons, we can assist.

A Direct Cremation service often appears to be only offered by larger companies – so why choose Drew & Sons Funeral Directors?

Drew & Sons Funeral Directors…

  • We have offered this service for many years, previously called Unattended Cremations

  • We can offer a comparable price as larger companies, but with a more personal touch

  • We use local crematoriums and not travel to other parts of the country with your loved one

Direct Cremation – what is this?

Typically this service takes place at a crematorium at a time to suit the funeral directors, with no family, friends or vicar present.

There is a coffin but no flowers, order of service or personal touches associated with a Traditional service.

For some families, this is exactly what they want for their loved one, or requested by the deceased prior to their death, and with the knowledge that we will conduct this funeral in the same caring, compassionate, dignified manner we share with all our families and funerals.

How much does a Direct Cremation cost?

Our Direct Cremation costs £1,595.00

This fee includes:

  • Our choice of coffin for the deceased

  • Cremation fees for a local crematorium

  • Associated Doctor’s fees to enable the cremation to take place

What our customers have to say

On behalf of all the family we would like to express our gratitude for your kindness and consideration extended to us at such a sad and difficult time. It was a great comfort to us that A. was in such kind and sympathetic hands at the end.

I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of my family and myself, to thank you both for all the arrangements both before and on the day. Everything was done with dignity and respect. We could not have wished for anything more considerate or caring.

I want to thank you very much for looking after my dear Mum in January.
It meant a great deal to know that she was with someone we knew and trusted.
It's a very special and important job that you do, and you do it very well indeed.
We really appreciate your hard work and your kindness.
