Direct Cremation in West Sussex

West Sussex Landscape

In the South East of England the average cost of a burial is a staggering £4,831, and a cremation is not far behind at £3,328. Harbour offers a more affordable alternative with direct cremation at a starting price of £895, with no upfront payments or hidden costs. Direct cremations are fast becoming a popular alternative to more traditional funeral services, with direct cremation making up 14 percent of all funerals in 2020. 

 

Not only are direct cremations more economical, but they provide a great deal of flexibility during such a challenging time. Many families prefer to organise memorial events for their loved ones at certain times of the year that may hold sentimental value, or opt to wait for better weather during the summer to celebrate the life of their loved one. Direct cremation allows for these wishes, as once the cremation is complete, the ashes can be returned to you for just £91. The ashes are hand delivered to anywhere in England and Wales, in a sustainably-sourced British-made wooden urn with an engraved nameplate. 

 

What is included in direct cremation with Harbour?

 

We at Harbour believe that everyone should have access to affordable funeral services in the UK. As such, direct cremation with Harbour costs just £895, the best value in the UK with no hidden costs or compromise on quality, respect or dignity. We do not require any upfront payments or deposits, and have financing options available. 

 

Harbour will collect your loved one from any hospital or mortuary in England or Wales, and then transport them to our regional crematorium in West Sussex. They will then be provided with an environmentally-friendly coffin, made by British craftsmen. 

 

The cremation will then take place privately at our crematorium. Whilst you will not be in attendance, we will ensure that you are aware of the date and time beforehand should you wish to mark the occasion. This helps keep the cost down for our customers, as there is no need to hire out a chapel.

 

Following the cremation, you can choose to have the ashes scattered in the Garden of Remembrance at the crematorium at no extra cost. Alternatively, you can have the ashes returned to you, hand-delivered in a sustainably-sourced British-made wooden urn with an engraved nameplate, for an additional fee of £91.

Why choose direct cremation in West Sussex with Harbour? 

 

Direct cremation with Harbour is a popular choice not only for our reasonable and affordable prices. Direct cremation also frees you from the confines of more traditional funeral services. In an increasingly secular world, many people no longer require the expense and formalities of religious services, and therefore would prefer to avoid the expenditure of hiring out a chapel or entire crematorium for a service they do not need. 

 

Personalised ceremonies for scattering ashes are fast becoming the norm, with around 70% of people opting for cremation over burial. This allows families to then conduct their own memorials for their loved ones, choosing to scatter their ashes in places which hold sentimental value, or to keep their ashes close to them in an urn.
