Simple Cremation Options

At the Silver Rose we have expanded on the traditional direct cremation service to allow some greater involvement and ceremony with less fuss or financial burden, whichever may be your priority.

These services are comprehensive and the prices are finite for each option but the services available are reduced in line with the reduced cost, i.e. there are no visitations, or additional coffin choices and there is limited personalisation of arrangements.

Option 1

Direct Cremation: £1250

A straightforward unattended service which will take place at a time of our choice at a local crematorium.

Your involvement with us will be limited to completion of documentation and the collection of your loved ones ashes.

Option 2

Funeral home ceremony: £2250

This is our most popular simple cremation service. Having completed all documentation, we will organise a date and time of mutual agreement to hold a funeral service at one of our funeral homes. We have included a celebrant fee in this price, which may be removed if not required. Following the service your loved one will be conveyed to the crematorium at a time of our choosing for a direct cremation, no mourners will be permitted at this final stage.

Option 3

Morning service: from £2295

Attended committals take place at local crematoriums at set morning appointments. We will convey your loved one to the crematorium in our silver hearse, you may follow in your own vehicles or meet us at the venue. Depending on venue, there may be a limited number of mourners at the crematorium and a limited service may take place in line with the applied reduction in crematorium fees. As such we have not included a celebrant fee in the above price.
