Direct Cremation

Although a Direct Cremation with Frank Painter & Sons may cost less than traditional funerals, you still receive our traditional caring and compassionate service. Unlike other providers who charge additional fees for collecting your loved one overnight or at the weekends, or for collecting the ashes from the crematorium, 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
  • 24 hour 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
  • 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
  • There is no funeral service, so mourners are unable to attend the crematorium
  • There are 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 within 2 working days of the arrangement being made, which can be paid by cash, cheque or credit or debit cards.

Fixed cost of a Direct Cremation with Frank Painter & Sons: £1545.00
