Non-attended funeral

For families who choose not to have a service or may not wish to attend a funeral, this is a very simple, low cost arrangement.

What’s included:

  • Professional services
  • A meeting to arrange all necessary documentation including advice on registration
  • Liaising with hospital, doctor or coroner as necessary.
  • Collection of deceased within a 20mile radius of our office
  • Care of deceased until time of cremation
  • Simple wood effect coffin suitable for cremation including name plate.
  • Transfer of deceased in a suitable vehicle (may not be a hearse) to Pure Crematorium at a time and date arranged by us.
  • Return of cremated remains to our office in a crematorium container ready for collection by the person arranging the funeral.

The non-attended cremation service costs £1100.00 including disbursements.

Should it be desirable for the cremation to take place at West Suffolk Crematorium an addition of £185 will be added.

This arrangement may only suit those who prefer a non-attended funeral, however we can discuss any alterations you may require, such as dressing in own clothes.

Whilst this is a low cost arrangement our normal high level of care will always be paramount.
