Green Park in Central London

Direct Cremation in Central London

Green Park in Central London

The average cost of a funeral in London today is £5,235. This extortionate price is leading more people to turn to direct cremation in Central London instead of more traditional funerals. Direct cremation is lower in cost, as it separates the cremation from the funeral service. This means that the cremation takes place privately, without friends and family in attendance, and memorials and ceremonies can then be arranged at a later date. Direct cremation is therefore more affordable as there is no cost of hiring out a venue for the ceremony alongside the cremation. 

 

Direct cremation is also available with Harbour in North London, West London, East London, and South London. In fact, Harbour covers all of England and Wales for the same fixed price. 

 

Direct Cremation with Harbour in Central London 

 

The cost of a direct cremation with Harbour starts at just £895, a fraction of the price of a traditional funeral. Harbour also does not take deposits so there are no upfront payments or hidden costs. 

 

Harbour will take care of everything, including collecting your loved one from any mortuary or hospital in England or Wales. Harbour will then provide them with an environmentally-friendly, British-made coffin and look after them until the cremation itself. The cremation will then take place privately at one of our regional crematoria in London, and you will be informed of the date and time beforehand. 

 

The ashes can then be scattered in the crematorium’s Garden of Remembrance, or, returned to you in a sustainably-sourced, wooden urn made by British craftsmen, complete with an engraved nameplate, for the additional fee of £91.
