Direct Cremation

 

 

 

 

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 committal.

 

 

Our Direct Cremation service includes two options:
 

​Attended Direct Cremation
 

  •  In office hours removal of deceased from any place of death within the M25

  •  Care of the body prior to the funeral

  •  A simple coffin (Brook)

  •  A hearse and bearers to convey the coffin to the crematorium chapel

  •  A funeral director at the committal

  •  Assistance in completing all the necessary paperwork

  •  The crematorium fee

  •  Attendance of mourners at the committal with music if preferred (no service)

 

 

Our Attended Direct Cremation price is £1,795. A medical certificate for cremation is an additional cost of £82, therefore bringing the total to £1,877. This medical certificate is 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 at the committal

The committal will take place at a time and date to suit Levertons at Golders Green, St Marylebone or Islington Crematorium.
