We have created three funeral choices that provide everything required for a traditional cremation or burial. That’s right, everything required including all disbursements paid and all our professional fees covered, a standard coffin and even an urn or scatter tube. No surprises and no hidden costs.

We have also given you a unique option to create a bespoke funeral to suite your exact wishes. In just a few simple pages we will guide you through every aspect and choice for your funeral from location and style to vehicles and tributes.

Direct Cremation

During the Coronavirus lockdown there is a limit on the number of people who can attend a funeral. For some families a Direct Cremation might be the best solution. With a saving of over £1,500 a Direct Cremation differs from a Traditional Cremation in that there is no service beforehand and there are no mourners in attendance. This gives you the chance to arrange a dignified funeral for your loved one now with the opportunity, and the budget, to arrange a memorial service or gathering at a later date when it is safe to do so.

What the package includes

  • Bringing the deceased into our care from any location within 20 miles including home, care home or hospice at no extra cost
  • Provision of a full hearse (not a private ambulance) for transport to the crematorium
  • Cremation location is Southend Crematorium (your loved one will not be kept or cremated miles away)
  • Removal of pacemaker or prosthetics is included if required
  • Return of ashes to the family, usually within two weeks, at no extra cost

What isn’t included

  • Third party fees (disbursements) which include the Crematorium fee (£460), an oak veneer coffin (£250) and the doctor’s fee (£82 if this is required). A typical final price for a Direct Cremation including disbursements is £1,500

Of course we will handle all arrangements and liaisons with third parties as well as giving you our full support before, during and after the funeral.

Testimonials

To everyone at Penrose,

We would like to thank you for your professional and friendly manner which was so evident before and on the day of our husband and father Martin Hope’s funeral on June 7th. Hoping we don’t need your services for a while yet, but when we do we would certainly come back to you. Your kindness and sympathy is deeply appreciated and will always be remembered.

Nathan and Jeremy, Thank you so much for waiting for me tonight, I really appreciate it. I’m so pleased I got there to see mum, she looks lovely and looks like she’s just having a lovely sleep. I love that she is holding all the photos and roses close to her, that is a lovely touch, thank you. I will most definitely be recommending your services.

I just want to say thank you on behalf of myself and my sisters for my father’s funeral. Thanks to you and your staff for helping us through this hard time, you made us feel very comfortable with our roles at the funeral and your professional services we received. We would highly recommend your services to anyone that may be in need.

S Pitkin - April 2017

Thank you to all at Penrose for helping both of us through what could have been a difficult time under very trying circumstances.

The caring way you dealt with my Mother, Flossie’s, funeral over the telephone, your kindness in fulfilling all our wishes and the respect and professionalism shown today made it a day we shall always treasure.

Thank you again,

To all the team at Penrose,

Thankyou so much for the dignified way that you conducted my husband’s funeral. It was all I could have wished for under difficult circumstances.

Also for the kind and caring attitude you all had towards myself and my family,

Thank you once again,

Frances Curtis - January 2021

Good morning Jeremy

A big thank you to you and your team for yesterday, the day went like clockwork (apart from my father in law following the wrong limousine out of the crematorium which raised a few laughs at the wake)

I just wanted you to know how grateful my whole family were, from the first call to the last handshake you were professional and caring and my mum in particular was very happy with the day.
Please pass on my thanks to your staff.
Kind Regards
Mark Steadman - Feb 28th 2020
