The Direct Cremation Plan - £1,845

Direct cremation removes the formality of a traditional funeral service. The funeral director, allocated by Open Prepaid Funerals Ltd at the time of need, arranges collection from the place of death and provides care until the day of the cremation. This plan includes the provision of a basic coffin, sufficient staff to convey the deceased to the crematorium and the contribution to 3rd party fees.

The date and time of the funeral is arranged by the funeral director with no mourners in attendance and no ceremony. The cremated remains are then either scattered at the crematorium or can be made available to the family for collection. Most families who choose this option will arrange for an alternative Memorial Service after the cremation.

The direct cremation plan is the most cost effective way of prepaying for a funeral in advance and yet price is often not the deciding factor. In many cases this approach to the funeral just sits comfortably with the plan holders lifestyle and is a less emotional way of dealing with end of life planning.

The direct cremation is a discreet and dignified service provided by a professional funeral director in accordance with the appropriate legal requirements.

Tailor made Funeral Plans

If none of Open's set plans is exactly what you had in mind, we can work with you to tailor a plan that specifically meets your needs. You may find it useful to use one of our plans as a guide to help you begin the process. Then you could add an extra limousine if required, or decide that you would prefer the service to take place in your local church rather than a crematorium chapel.

Whatever your thoughts, talk to us and we'll guide you through the planning process. Then your chosen funeral director will detail all the fees and charges giving you a final amount to pay. Whatever your agreed plans, we promise to provide the funeral of your choice with absolutely no further costs at the time of need.
