Questions our customers ask

Urgent collection (when someone dies at home)


From the moment you call us, we aim to collect within 5 hours, but we’re often much quicker than that. Paperwork is obtained later, ensuring no delays for collection.


Non-urgent collection (when someone dies in hospital)


From the moment you call us, we aim to collect within 10 days. However, this is always dependent on obtaining the necessary paperwork from all parties involved. We will keep you updated on progress every step of the way.


When someone dies in a care home, community hospital or hospice, collection could be urgent or non-urgent depending on the facilities.

If someone has died and you need to arrange a cremation – you can call our team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 0800 033 7737.

The initial call with us will take around 20 minutes, a member of our friendly team will take key information from yourself and complete the application for cremation for you.

 

The cremation will usually take place 13-16 days from instruction, but is reliant on receiving all of the necessary paperwork from all parties. We will keep you updated on the progress every step of the way.

 

We then aim to hand-return the ashes of your loved one within 14 days of cremation.

9 out of 10 Pure Cremations are unattended, meaning no mourners are present. Our caring staff will carry out the process with the utmost respect and without anyone present – we then return the ashes by hand, or scatter them in our garden of remembrance.

Our attended option gives the family some quiet time with their loved one at the crematorium. The coffin is placed in the chapel before the family arrives. There is no Funeral Director, no service, and no celebrant present. Some families like to play their favorite music or deliver a brief reading. You are welcome to bring flowers to place on the coffin (up to 12 attendees can be present). This costs between £250 - £700.

Ashes are returned in a specially designed, biodegradable urn wrapped in a beautiful landscape image. This is more sustainable due to being made of renewable raw material, and has a CO2 saving of more than 20%. The urn is included in your price.

Pure Cremation is proud to go above and beyond the strict UK rules for identity checking. Each person we look after is given a unique identification code, which is scanned at each stage of care. 

 

  • Each coffin’s identity is checked when it arrives at the crematorium. All data must match the documents submitted to the crematorium before it can be accepted 
  • This identity is checked again, before the coffin enters the cremation chamber, and a ceramic disc bearing the specific cremation number is placed on the coffin 
  • The identity is checked and logged again once the remains and the ceramic disc are removed from the cremation chamber 
  • This identity is logged once more when the remains go through the final step: preparation to return to the family 

 

Pure Cremation is one of the only direct cremation providers in the UK to use this visible proof of identity. 

We do not need a copy of the death certificate, but we will require the death to be registered. Once the registration of death has taken place, the registrar will produce a green certificate. Ask the registrar to send this directly to us at info@purecremation.co.uk. If this is not possible, please send a copy to us yourself, preferably by email. (You will not have a green certificate if the coroner is involved)
