Frequently Asked Questions

Below 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 £78.50 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.

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

We are so glad we decided to go the direct cremation route. It was what Daddy wanted anyway, a fuss-free, simple and respectful cremation that gave us a larger budget to organise a great ceremony a month later where no one was rushed, most family members were able to attend, and we had a fantastic eulogy with his ashes present.

It's hard enough to go through the death of a family member anyway without being faced with lists of options of caskets, venues, flowers etc. Neo Cremations made the whole process simple. With the added plus of making the planet a tiny bit more green - how pleasing that something good can come out of this.

I cannot thank you enough for providing me with your services during one of the toughest times of my life. With my husband's sudden passing, at such a heartbreaking and difficult time, I was overwhelmed with the thought of finding a way to pay for the funeral. I have only ever known of funeral costs costing at least £5000. For such a small fee in comparison, you provided me with such an efficient and sensitive service taking away all the headaches that come with a funeral. You made everything so much easier for me. Thank you so much again.

At a time when this was the last thing I wanted to arrange, Neo Cremations really did guide me through each step with care and compassion - I had so many questions, they were so patient and I can't thank them enough. After the cremation they created a Facebook memorial page, which is something I wouldn't have thought of, and now there's somewhere where family and friends have shared memories and photos. We used it during the memorial service, which was a really nice touch.

Thank you NEO for all the help and a special thank you to Belinda who’s been fantastic throughout the process. She was so courteous and helpful while we were going through a difficult time. She made sure all our needs were attended to and made us feel special, which was most welcome as we had to deal with so many different things related to the death. I would be very happy to recommend the service to anyone I know.

Generally very happy with the level of service we received. These guys are professional and are taking pride in delivering a great service. Our family is also very glad we were able to contribute new tree plantings as part of the process - it made us feel good and would have been what our mom would have wanted to do anyway.

We’re so happy we finally decided on using NEO Cremations. We weren’t sure what to do when our mom died and none of the options we were presented with seemed appealing. We came across the NEO Cremations website via a Facebook add and immediately resonated with the purpose - what better way to say goodbye than by having a green funeral where you know that the whole process is eco friendly and sustainable. This was important to us and I think everyone should consider their impact on their environment, even when someone dies. Well done NEO for offering this option in England and thank you for the great service.
