Better Farewells with Capital Cremation
How it works
Direct cremation is a simple, affordable, and environmentally friendly way to say goodbye to your loved one. It is the least expensive option available for funeral services and provides an alternative to traditional burial or cremation services.
Direct cremation is the most common type of cremation in the United Kingdom and is often chosen because it is straightforward and fast. The body is cremated with a simple ceremony, or without any ceremony or viewing, and the ashes are returned to the family in an urn. We offer direct cremation services from £849, which includes everything you need for a simple and dignified farewell service.
Simple, Affordable and Dignified Cremations
With a direct cremation, you can avoid the cost and waste of a traditional funeral. A direct cremation is a type of funeral service where the body is cremated without any prior ceremony at the crematorium, and usually with no mourners present.
Arrange a simple cremation for someone who has died and take all the time you need to organise a separate farewell.
Family Led Service
If you’re looking for a low cost way to honour your loved one, with an option of service in the crematorium chapel, consider a cremation with family-led service. Arrange a family led service funeral where you can attend with your family and friends.
Choosing a cremation with family-led service lets you attend the ceremony alongside your loved ones at the crematorium chapel. We welcome relatives and friends to attend the funeral service
