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.

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 guide.

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.

Direct cremations are becoming increasingly popular in England 

  1. For financial reasons – a direct cremation costs a fraction of the cost of a conventional funeral
  2. Because of personal preferences – fewer people, especially among younger generations, want the typical mournful service and somber funeral procession
  3. 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
  4. 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

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.

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.
