Funeral pathway 3

Direct/Pure service Pathway

A direct funeral, also known as a ‘direct cremation’ or ‘pure cremation’ describes a funeral with no service beforehand and one that preserves only the essential features of the funeral. Because of this structure, it is designed for those who either intend to keep costs low, or prefer the simplest kind of funeral there is for personal, cultural or spiritual reasons. Memorial services can, however, be arranged at an alternative time if desired (ashes can be present).

Our fee for this ‘pure-type’ cremation is highly competitive with regards to other companies, such as ‘Pure Cremation’ who charge add-ons for ashes delivery at your chosen time and collection of your loved one from a hospice, home or care home…meaning their overall cost is actually higher. As well as offering highly competitive and fair pricing, we also maintain our personalised service.

The Direct Pathway is a direct funeral service package; an all inclusive option with the exception of the possible doctors’ fees, if required, at £82. The total cost is £1320.00 at Charing Crematorium and includes the following:

Why choose us over cheaper (or so it seems) direct/pure cremation companies?

- You will know where your loved one is at all times – this can be of great comfort
- You can meet and/or speak to your personal independent funeral director who will handle everything for you
- Your loved one will not be driven hundreds of miles around the country, with multiple other families’ loved ones, before being laid to rest
- You can choose an alternative coffin if you wish and upgrade the cost
- You can choose the date of delivery or collection of ashes without any additional cost
- The other companies are not all as cheap as they like to appear – look out for their hidden add-ons eg. an extra £250 to collect your loved one from a care home or hospice and obscenely high fees for removing a pace maker (we don’t charge anything – it is considered part of our care)
- You are supporting a local independent family-owned business and receive a personal service
- You can choose to select clothing or a gown for your loved one and visit in our chapel of rest
- You can choose the date or location of the cremation
- We even like to gift our families a scatter tube – you can choose from a large selection of designs
