Direct Cremation in North London

London Hampstead Heath Pond

Once upon a time, the type of funeral you had was dictated by your religion. For instance, if you were Christian, you had a burial in anticipation of the second coming of Christ. Meanwhile, if you were Hindu, you were cremated in the belief that this is the quickest way to release the soul and help with reincarnation. 

 

However, in today’s predominantly secular society, considerations for the afterlife are largely redundant. This leaves most people at liberty to choose the type of funeral that works best for them. An increasing number of Londoners are subsequently choosing direct cremation across London. 

 

Harbour covers direct cremations in North London, South London, East London, West London and Central London. If you are keen to contact us and begin arranging a direct cremation, our number is 0800 133 7961 and our email address is [email protected]

 

What is direct cremation in North London?

 

Direct cremation is a separation of the cremation and the funeral service. The cremation typically takes place without attendees. Friends and family members of the deceased person will usually hold their own send off in their own time. In many cases, this involves scattering the person’s ashes. 

 

There are several options for direct cremation in North London. However, Harbour’s service is guaranteed to be the cheapest. We conduct private and dignified direct cremations for a flat fee of £895. Compared to a traditional cremation funeral in London which cost on average £5,235, this represents a considerable saving.

Answer a few questions and we'll give you an exact price with no strings attached. Alternatively you can also call our team directly on 0800 133 7961 for advice.

What does Harbour’s £895 fee cover in North London?

 

Here at Harbour, we are fully aware of the emotional challenges most of our clients are experiencing. As such, we want to make the process of planning a direct cremation as simple and as stress free as possible. To this end, a number of services are included within our low-cost £895 price. 

 

Harbour will collect your loved one from any hospital or mortuary in North London and bring them to our regional crematorium. We will have an environmentally-friendly coffin made for them, employing British craftsmen to complete the simple design. This coffin will be used on the day of the cremation itself. 

 

We will then organise for the deceased person’s cremation at our London crematorium. All of our cremations are individual and private and your loved one will be treated with the utmost respect. You will be informed of the date and time of this in advance in case you would like to mark the occasion.

 

In addition, you can also have the ashes of your friend or family member scattered in our London crematorium’s Gardens of Remembrance. Or, if you prefer, you can pay extra to have them delivered to your address.

 

Does Harbour offer any additional services in North London?

 

On top of the aforementioned services which are included in the £895 fee, Harbour can also help you with a number of additional extras. 

 

For example, we can hand deliver the ashes to your home for £91 extra. They will be placed in a sustainably-sourced wooden urn, engraved with the name of your loved one. 

 

Likewise, if needed, we can arrange for the deceased person to be collected from any private home, hospice or nursing home in North London. The fee for this is £250.
