Traditional Burial

The Traditional Burial Package includes everything you need for the funeral including a standard coffin and the fee for interment at Southend Cemetery. It does not include the fee for purchasing a new burial plot as many families already own a grave plot. (Please note, if you wish to purchase a new plot or arrange a burial at a different cemetery then please go to our Bespoke Funeral option. Here you will be able to select your preferred cemetery and choose whether you need a new grave or already own an existing plot and you will be given a clear price breakdown at every point.)

We will collect your loved one and bring them into our care, do a full dressing and arrange for viewing in our chapel of rest if you wish. We will take you through every step of the arrangement and liaise with all parties to ensure that the chapel, cemetery, celebrant, music and everything else is all arranged as you wish. We will provide a Funeral Director and a full team of bearers on the day and transport the coffin to a private residence if required before we arrive at the service.

Direct Cremation

The main benefit of a Direct Cremation is that it does enable the funeral costs to be reduced by over £1,500. The Direct Package provides everything required for a dignified cremation but without a service at the crematorium or any mourners in attendance. Because we are committed to price transparency our Direct Package includes not only our professional services but absolutely everything you need;

  • Bringing the deceased into our care from any location within 20 miles including home, care home or hospice at no extra cost
  • Crematorium fees and doctors’ fees fully covered
  • Provision of a mahogany wood-effect coffin with lining and fittings
  • Provision of a full hearse (not a private ambulance) for transport to the crematorium
  • Cremation at 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

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

If you have a direct cremation but would like to have a service for family and friends then we can arrange for a celebrant to conduct a service at a time and place of your choosing, including evenings and weekends. Please contact us on 01702 436000 for more information about this.

To Jeremy, Nathan and everyone involved with our father’s funeral. We would like to express our deepest thanks for all you did after the loss of our dear husband/father. Your kindness and professionalism were incredible. The fact that you all wore ‘silly socks’ without prompting blew us away! You are all very special people, Thank you again

Kay, Matt and Sam - November 2016

To Nathan and all at Penrose, I just wanted to thank you for the sensitivity, care and respect you showed my Grannie yesterday. She looked amazing and I’m sure you caught a glimpse of her incredible 100 years as my dad spoke at the grave-side. You don’t have an easy job but I hope you know how grateful people are that you do it so well.

Your manner and conduct was gentle, considerate and supportive, thank you for all you did to make yesterday so special. You have been given the gifting and attitude needed to help bring peace and blessing during difficult circumstances. May you know God’s peace and blessing as you continue to serve others in this way, Thank you

We can’t thank you enough for looking after Avril/mum/nan. Your kindness and respect will never be forgotten.

We appreciate the time you took to explain everything and the respect that was shown to Avril.

Thank you…Kind regards

Reg, Marie and Sam - December 2018

I really can’t thank the team at Penrose enough for the beautiful funeral they managed for my dear husband Fred. Especially Nathan for helping us plan the day with such care and dignity.

I met Nathan’s dad Jeremy for the first time when he arrived with the cortege to collect us from home. Immediately I felt totally at ease with this charming charismatic gentleman leading the service perfectly from begining to end.

Thank you so much

from Georgie

Georgina Bateman - February 2020

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
