Final Duties Cremation Service

What is an unattended funeral

An unattended funeral is a funeral that takes place privately at the crematorium or burial ground, it is not witnessed or attended by family or friends. An unattended funeral more often includes a direct cremation with the ashes being returned to the family once the unattended funeral has taken place. Alternatively, it is possible to have a direct burial where the body is buried with no attendees.

What does it cost and what do you get?

The cost of an unattended funeral can vary, but burial is often slightly more costly than a cremation. An unattended funeral with a direct cremation can cost between £1,200 to £2,000.

An unattended funeral often includes;

  • Transportation of the body
  • Doctors Fees
  • Cremation fees
  • A coffin
  • Delivery of the Ashes to the family
