Direct cremation service
Our Direct Cremation service includes:

A hearse and bearers to convey the coffin to the crematorium chapel
Assistance in completing all the necessary paperwork
The crematorium fee
This pared-down service is designed for people who do not want a ceremony at the time of the cremation. The cremated remains can be returned to the family and a memorial service can be held at a later date. This type of funeral is the simplest and least expensive we offer, given that there is no formal ceremony at the crematorium.
Our Direct Cremation price is £1,795. Medical certificates for cremation are an additional cost of £164, therefore bringing the total to £1,959. These medical certificates are usually required unless the death is a coroner's case or are waived for some reason.
Unlike many other Direct Cremation packages, we include the use of a hearse unless otherwise advised and also allow families and loved ones to be present if they wish to pay their last respects.
The funeral takes place early on a weekday morning (9.00am to 10.00am) on a date to suit Levertons. It will usually be at Golders Green Crematorium, although St Marylebone or Islington crematoria are also available.
We can talk you through this option and answer any questions you may have.
