Direct Cremation

Although a Direct Cremation with Frank Painter & Sons may cost less than a traditional attended funeral, you still receive our traditional caring and compassionate service.  We believe in helping our families every step of the way, and that includes knowing exactly what is included and how much it will cost from the outset.

What’s included in our Direct Cremation:

  • One of our dedicated funeral directors will attend to all the arrangements, and offer guidance and support along the way
  • Collection of the person who has died, whether from a hospital, private residence or nursing home within a 20 mile radius of our Shrewsbury premises, collection from further afield will incur a nominal mileage charge (within working hours)
  • Suitable care and preparation of the deceased
  • Doctors’ fees for the cremation, if required
  • Our traditional oak-veneered coffin
  • A suitable vehicle to take the deceased to the crematorium
  • Cremation fees for an unattended committal at the crematorium
  • Return of the ashes to our Shrewsbury premises where they can be collected at the families’ convenience

What’s not included in our Direct Cremation:

  • There is no choice of date or time or venue for the cremation
  • No funeral service, so mourners are unable to attend the crematorium
  • Finally no visits to our Chapel of Rest to view the deceased, nor is any embalming process necessary

Because of the significant savings involved in Direct Cremation, we require full payment prior to the cremation taking place.

Fixed cost of a Direct Cremation with Frank Painter & Sons: £1795.00
