Direct Cremation

The main benefit of a Direct Cremation is that it does enable the funeral costs to be reduced by over £1,000. The Direct Package provides everything required for a dignified cremation but without a service at the crematorium or any mourners in attendance. Naturally all our professional services are included. We will bring the deceased into our care, 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 01702 436000 for more information about this.

Dear Nathan and Jeremy, Thank you so much for all your help. You are truly a great family business!

Tony, Kim and Linda - August 2017

WOW…What an amazing team!

Thank you Brendon and Kevin for your sympathy, kindness and compassion when you took Cliff into Penrose’ care.

Thank you Nathan for arranging the funeral, it was perfect in every way.

Thank you Jeremy for completing the Order of Service and for leading the funeral in such a respectful, dignified and professional manner. We cannot express how much this meant to us as a family.

Thank you Edward and Paul for your support, respect and kindness on the day of the funeral. Edward, you offered your coat to our mum as she looked cold and Paul, you were so kind talking about the dogs outside our house before we left, the dogs were a big part of Cliff and are so important to the family, so this gave us comfort knowing that they had been recognised.

We have no hesitation in recommending your services to our family and friends.

All of you made a very sad day more bearable. We sincerely THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts,

Kindest wishes

Carole, Darren and Ruth Wingrove - January 2020
