How does it work?

1

Contact

We are available 24 hours a day. If you prefer, you can call us in advance to provide some basic information, so when the time comes there is less for you to worry about.

2

Collection

We will collect the deceased from anywhere in Great Britain and take care of them at our mortuary facilities. This includes suitable transport to the crematorium for cremation.

3

Cremation

We take care of everything including the removal of artificial devices such as pacemakers and handling of paperwork. The cremation will take place at our trusted partner crematorium and we'll let you know the date and time it will take place.

4

Ashes returned

Delivered on a day that suits you, usually within 14 days after cremation. Ashes are returned in a biodegradable urn that you can bury or use to scatter in a special location.

5

Celebration

You are free to gather the people that matter, at a time that suits everyone, to celebrate the life of your loved one.

Extras you may need or wish to add

Doctors' fees £82

Unless a coroner has completed a post-mortem, a doctor will need to provide a medical certificate for cremation which they all charge a standard fee for. We will deal with the doctors on your behalf.

Non-hospital collection £250

If the collection is from a location such as a personal residence or care home then we will need to send a team out straight away. We're available 24 hours a day.

XXL coffin £300

If your loved one is heavier than 20st or taller than 6'7" then a special order coffin may be required. We will assess each case individually and try to minimise this cost for you where possible.

Attending the committal £500

An intimate gathering at 9am for up to 12 people, held at one of our partner crematoriums local to you. As well as being able to play 2 or 3 songs to reflect to, it will also give those who would like to say a few words and share memories the chance to do so. Ashes will then be collected by the representative from the crematorium.
