Frequently asked questions about our Bristol direct cremation

What is the difference between a direct cremation and a standard funeral in Bristol?

Unlike a standard funeral, a direct cremation in Bristol means there is no hearse, pallbearers or service held with mourners at the crematorium. This gives family the time to plan something unique and personal in their own time, with or without the ashes.

Can I attend the service with a direct cremation in Bristol?

A direct cremation is unattended, so there is no service at the crematorium. However, we do let the family know the date and time of the cremation so they can do something special at home.

How much is a direct cremation in Bristol?

Our direct cremation service in Bristol which includes collection, care at our mortuary and the cremation costs is £895. Extras include; £100 for the return of ashes, £82 for a doctor's fee (which is always needed if there has not been a post-mortem) and £295 for an urgent collection (which is needed if someone dies at home).

Can I pay in advance for a direct cremation in Bristol?

Yes, we offer a fully inclusive prepaid direct cremation plan. Once you have paid for a plan, the cost is fixed and guaranteed no matter how far in the future you need us. Visit our Pre-Paid Plan Page to find out more.

Will the cremation take place in Bristol?

Although we cover all of Bristol, we are a national direct cremation provider which means that the cremation may not take place at your local crematorium. We have facilities around the country and as a direct cremation is unattended, the location is chosen by Celebration of Life and we then let you know the date and time so you can do something special at home.
