Simple. No Fuss Cremation from £1,350 (or £1,650 pre paid)

How does direct cremation work?

Direct cremations from Stockman & Loram offer a simple alternative to traditional cremation services. Often referred to as a ‘Pure Cremation’, it’s where the cremation itself takes place without any form of funeral service.


It is a simple alternative to a traditional funeral that gives you the freedom to hold a more personal farewell how and when you choose. Some families choose to hold informal gatherings to scatter the ashes or host a party at a later time to celebrate their loved one in a way that better reflects their character.

This type of funeral is also chosen by people who just simply did not wish to have any formal funeral service. In essence it is the simplest form of funeral available.

Stockman & Loram can offer a direct cremation from £1,350 subject to our terms and conditions. However for deaths occurring in nursing homes and private houses outside of normal office hours the cost will be an additional £250.

Please bear in mind this is a limited service and does not benefit from our full support and guidance. However it does include our full support and advice relating to;

  • Moving the deceased into our care
  • Arranging the necessary paperwork with the doctor or coroner for cremation
  • Arranging the necessary paperwork and advice to you regarding the registration of the death including how to get death certificates.
  • Caring for the deceased in our chapel of rest in a simple cremation coffin
  • Staff and suitable vehicle to convey the deceased to the crematorium of our discretion.
  • Return of the cremated remains in a simple container. (other options available)


  • No provision to hold any type of gathering or service
  • The cremation is at the venue, date and time of our choice (we do notify you)
  • There is no cortege and no attendance at the crematorium.
  • We kindly request full payment and the completion of all forms prior to carrying out a direct cremation.


Many other companies offer direct cremation services, but you won’t find the same care and attention to detail that we offer here at Stockman & Loram. We always treat the deceased with respect and dignity and are more than happy to visit you in person to discuss your cremation plans. We understand this can be easier than doing everything by phone or post and we also allow some additional items to be chosen, whereas most national providers do not.
