Direct Cremation

£1550

Direct Cremation is becoming more popular throughout the UK with families opting not to have a service; following in the footsteps of David Bowie in choosing not to go down a traditional route. The price includes the cost of cremation, the doctors fees, the collection and care of the person who has died, a coffin and scattering or delivery to your home of the cremated remains.

Direct Burial

£1600

Direct Burial is very similar to a Direct Cremation in that there is no service, which means that a burial can take place just a few days after the person has died, if you so wish. This price includes the burial fee, the collection and care of the person who has died and a coffin. This does not include the purchase of a grave which is £810 for a Cardiff cemetery.

Pure Service Cremation

£1850

A Pure Service Cremation is exactly as it says, purely a service at the crematorium. This is perfect for people who wanted a funeral service but didn’t want a fuss. The price includes a service at a crematorium chapel, a minister, the cost of the cremation, the doctors fees, the collection and care of the person who has died, a coffin and scattering or delivery to your home of the cremated remains.

Pure Service Burial

£1850

A Pure Service Burial gives you the opportunity to say your goodbyes at the graveside with a service. Again perfect for people who didn’t want a fuss at the time of their burial. This price includes a graveside service, the burial fee, a minister, the collection and care of the person who has died and a coffin. If you would like a service in a crematorium chapel before as well, the cost of the chapel hire is an additional £300. This does not include the purchase of a grave which is £810 for a Cardiff cemetery.

Traditional Cremation

£2350

Our traditional option available to you. A service at the crematorium with a traditional hearse to transport your loved one and a limousine for the family to brought to the service in style. This price also includes a service at a crematorium chapel, a minister, the cost of the cremation, the doctors fees, the collection and care of the person who has died, a coffin and scattering or delivery to your home of the cremated remains.

Traditional Burial

£2400

The Traditional Burial is historically what is the customary funeral within the UK. The price quoted includes a service at the beautiful Cathays Chapels followed by a burial within a Cardiff Cemetery, however we can use whichever church or place of worship that holds a place in your heart. This price also covers the burial fee, a minister, the collection and care of the person who has died, and a coffin. This does not include the purchase of a grave which is £810 for a Cardiff cemetery.

Military Cremation

£2500

As Neil was in the armed forces, he was adamant that we put together a service for those who served our country. This covers everything that is included in a traditional cremation as well as having standard bearers and the last post performed live by a bugler. It is also worth noting that this price will be reduced if the deceased received a medal for seeing conflict.

Military Burial

£2600

The Military Burial option also includes everything that you get from a traditional burial with the inclusion of having standard bearers and the last post performed live by a bugler. Again this price will be reduced if the deceased received a medal for seeing conflict.
