The Basics of Direct Cremation

Organising a funeral can be difficult and often expensive, especially when it is for someone you dearly love. However, it doesn’t need to be stressful or cost the world. With a direct cremation, you can have a respectful, fuss-free farewell.

If you haven’t heard of a direct cremation already, you may be wondering what this is. Essentially, it is the simplest of funeral arrangements and is being adopted by many people who are looking for a more private way of saying goodbye. With a direct cremation, this will occur without a funeral service. Instead, loved ones can choose to pay their respects to the person who has died in their own way, at a time that feels right for them, wherever they have their greatest memories.

We are specialists in direct cremations and can cover the whole of England and Wales. Our simple and dignified service is available for £1195 with no extra or hidden costs. Many people value the hassle-free, low-cost, high-quality service they get as a result. It also suits people who haven’t been religious during their lives, and who don’t necessarily feel a full funeral service would be right. And in some cases, it simply isn’t affordable for them.

At Far & Beyond, we differ to many other cremation companies throughout the UK as we offer a beautiful funeral home within our price. Laying someone to rest in a funeral home before their cremation is a traditional practice that we seek to uphold as it gives families the peace of mind that their loved one is resting in a clean, approved and peaceful environment.

Our FAQs

Is there any support available for the funeral of a child?

Far & Beyond Funeral Services will provide a funeral service for your child at absolutely no cost. We will also attempt to wave as many disbursement fees as possible. Sometimes it is very difficult to get the whole funeral free of charge due to third party fees. However we promise that we will not charge any additional fees and aim to reduce all third party costs where possible. The Child Funeral Charity also supports families who may need help in meeting the costs of a funeral. You can find our more at Child Fund Charity There are also a number of charities who support families following the loss of a child such as Child Bereavement UK.

Can I get help with funeral costs following the loss of a loved one?

You may be able to apply for assistance with funeral costs from the Department for Work and Pensions’ (DWP). The Social Fund can provide assistance to people who meet the required criteria. To qualify you must be the most suitable person to take responsibility for paying the funeral costs, you must also be receiving one of several qualifying benefits. You must also have insufficient savings to pay for the funeral. The DWP will only pay a limited amount, which may cover a very basic funeral, or they may provide a contribution towards a more traditional and costly funeral. Far & Beyond Funeral Services also have a Direct Debit facility to help with families’ struggling to pay their funeral costs. This will require an application, which will be reviewed by a member of our team. We understand that losing a loved one can be emotionally challenging so we are here to help and will do everything we can to lessen the burden as much as possible.
