I liked the price simplicity. One price and no other option. Made it so much simpler to compare with other providers and realise that we got great value for a great service. I wish all the websites were as simple to use
The cheapest and simplest service out there done with top notch service. Even Though it is cheap, it is great value. We are eternally grateful to the NEO Cremations team
A simple and effective service at a time when you need it the most. They took the hassle out of everything and really put us at ease throughout the whole process. The fact that it is all eco friendly too was a massive plus for us, something positive to come out of a sad situation
I used Neo cremations to help arrange my Father’s cremation. Very effective, fast service with superb customer service. They really made these difficult times much easier. I was amazed by the ease of the whole process, arranged the services online and received my Father`s remains in a 100% biodegradable urn in a couple of weeks. Despite everything being arranged online, the customer service provided makes sure the whole process stays personal. Carbon neutral whilst working with tree planting charities. A truly committed company to change the funeral industry into a sustainable one that doesn’t cost the Earth
My husbands death shook our family to the core. Neo cremations gave us an efficient, personalised service that brought joy and ease to a distressing process. Benjamin was genuinely kind in our interactions. The beautiful urn was biodegradable and my husband would have been thoroughly pleased with the results. It enables us to have a ceremony of our choosing, rather than a rigid, speedy traditional funeral. Thank you to Neo Cremations

Frequently Asked Questions
These are some of our most frequently asked questions and answers. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
A death in the family occurred - what steps do I need to take?
First, you will need to obtain a medical certificate with the cause of death. This is issued for free either by your GP if the death occurred at home, or by the resident doctor if the death occurred in a hospital or hospice.
At this point and with this medical certificate, you can arrange for the body of your loved one to be collected by pressing the ‘Arrange Now’ button.
Within five days, you will need to register the death at the register office where the death occurred. The register office will issue you with (1) the Death Certificate and with (2) a Certificate for Cremation (the ‘Green Certificate’). Both forms are free of charge.
You will also need to obtain Form 4 and Form 5 signed by two separate doctors . The GP or the resident doctor can help you obtain them. Each form costs £82 and are mandatory for a cremation. You will also need to complete a Form 1.
For a more in-depth review of what steps need to be taken after a death occurs, including checking eligibility for financial assistance, organising financial and tax affairs, and taking care of the estate, please refer to the comprehensive Naturaldeath.org guide.
What is the difference between a direct cremation and a traditional funeral?
A direct cremation is a cremation that takes place without a memorial ceremony. In a direct cremation, the body is collected, the cremation is performed unattended, and the ashes are returned together with a Certificate of Cremation issued by the crematorium where the cremation took place.
In a direct cremation, there is no longer the need to combine the cremation and the remembrance ceremony. Instead, the cremation is performed independently, unattended, and when the ashes are returned, you are then free to organise a separate memorial ceremony in your time, as you see fit.
Because a direct cremation is unattended and simple to organise, it is much cheaper than a conventional funeral, which is a much more complex and costly affair. A traditional funeral in England costs on average in excess of £4,000 plus the cost of the ceremony. A traditional funeral also needs to take place shortly after the death, placing even more stress on the family.
Why are direct cremations becoming increasingly more popular?
Direct cremations are becoming increasingly popular in England
- For financial reasons – a direct cremation costs a fraction of the cost of a conventional funeral
- Because of personal preferences – fewer people, especially among younger generations, want the typical mournful service and somber funeral procession
- Because of the flexibility it brings – not combining the cremation and the remembrance ceremony gives you more flexibility to organise a separate sending-off, as you see fit, when you feel you are ready
- For practical reasons – a direct cremation minimises what many consider to be superfluous ceremonials displays without sacrificing the respectful and dignified significance of the sending-off
Where are your services available?
Our services are available throughout most of England. Use the ‘Arrange Now’ button on our website to book a time for us to take your loved one into our care.
Is it possible to visit and view the body of our loved one?
Once the deceased is within our care, it is not possible to visit and view your loved one. One of the factors making direct cremations more affordable than conventional funerals is that, unlike traditional funerals, direct cremations are unattended.
