DIRECT CREMATION SERVICE
COLIN LOCKITT FUNERAL SERVICES LTD Tel 07738286370
£1050* One fixed price including all cremation fees
Direct cremation is offered to answer the specific requests of families who choose
the most simple, dignified and economical means of arranging their loved-one’s funeral.
This is a lower cost option and practical alternative when compared to a traditional funeral service
The Deceased is first cremated without any initial service or procession.
A memorial service can then be held, if desired, following the cremation,
and at a time, date and location more convenient, and perhaps more fitting.

Get Help With Funeral Costs
You could be entitled to a Funeral Expenses Payment (also called a Funeral Payment) if you get certain benefits and need help to pay for a funeral you are arranging. If you require further specific information regarding assistance with funeral payments, we will be happy to discuss these with you.
In order for us to keep our costs down we do require cleared funds three days prior to the cremation taking place (excluding DWP applications). This can be made by either bank transfer, cheque or cash.
