A High Quality Funeral Service From An Independent Family Funeral Director,  Putting People Before Profit 

What families we have helped say about us


I would like to thank you all on behalf of the Griffiths family, When our grandad passed away, we found ourselves in a difficult situation, ringing around local funeral directors the price of a simple funeral was topping £3500, money we didnt have. After searching online we came across Crem direct, I gave Sally a call to enquire the details, she was lovely and put my mind at ease straight away and organised for Lee to come and speak with the family, taking the time to listen to what we wanted. Nothing is too much trouble, from the music we wanted to the crematorium we wanted, it was all sorted for us, a big relief at a time of great sadness. As my grandad was not a religious man we opted for a humanitarian service, this was conducted by Fiona, for just a small fee, I found it most comforting the way she spoke about grandad. It was as if she had known him. The family had gathered different pieces of writing grandad had done throughout the years and it was lovely to hear them read out. Everyone was saying what a nice service it was, and agreed it would have been what grandad wanted. I would recommend your services to everyone. Miss S Griffiths and Family

Sadly we have had to use the services of Crem Direct twice in three weeks as both my parents passed away. We had done some research earlier in the year as their deaths were expected. I cannot emphasise enough DO NOT be put off by the name or think Crem Direct will cut corners to achieve the price. The service has been first class. Dominic has been to our home twice and has been excellent with the right balance of sensitivity, care and support. Whenever we have called and spoken to Sally the phone has been answered promptly and she has answered our questions swiftly. They do not have fancy offices, just offer a straight-forward caring service, allowing you to tailor make your requirements, and if you want "extras" or have additional needs this is no problem. A big thank you to all the team for making this stressful time bearable Regards David Harding

Would just like to thank cremdirect for conducting My Fathers funeral as we couldn't of asked for a more concerning, friendly and helpul service. Don't let the price put you off as these people give you what all the other overpriced people give you and were constantly on the phone ensuring that everything was going ok. We never once were pushed into buying things you dont need and were given advice rather than being sold stuff. A special thankyou to Dom and Sally who went the extra mile to help us and gave us a first class and compassionate service. At times when your sad and vulnerable other service providers can take advantage of you but at Cremdirect you never ever feel pressured and I personally would recommend them to anyone. Thanks again your were excellent, Peter.

Dear Fiona,

I would just like to thank you so much for the service you performed yesterday.

Everybody said how great it was.

The way you went about things, stopped it being a time of great sadness, but a time to say goodbye.Many people afterwards told me what a beautiful song 'I Believe' was, so it was a great idea to play it in the middle.

Keep safe & well,

All our thanks,

Hello Sally,
Roger and I would like you and your team for the professional and thoughtful way you conducted all aspects of Edith's funeral. We would recommend you to our friends who needed these services.Thank you again and please tell Fiona her service was perfect .

Dear Adrian and Sally and Everyone

I would like to thank every one at Crem Direct for their help and care for helping my husband and I through a difficult time.

The funeral was for Douglas M Simpson and you all guided us through each step until in the end it was perfect. 

Adrian was a great help in each step and I hope he now likes Chopin.  Sally helped to guide us initially and found the music Mr Simpson would have liked.

The casket was perfect and we felt very comfortable with all of it.  I made a donation to Cancer research instead of flowers so that sits well with us also.

Thank you for the extra support of the bearers which made more of a crowd to attend this funeral.

Regard to you all

Patricia and David Bowling

The shock of a sudden passing is hard enough to cope with, however, an additional shock maybe encountered when one realises that a funeral has to be arranged and paid for. Acting on behalf of my elderly parents, I had to quickly re-arrange my plans after being quoted £3,000 to £3,500 for a simple cremation service. After a quick search on the Internet I soon found the CREMDIRECT Web site, which contained all the relevant information and was very easy to understand. When I phoned CREMDIRECT to book my brother's funeral, I found the staff to be warm and friendly and sympathetic to my needs. The total cost of the funeral vvas £1,870 which included a Humanist Celebrant (Fiona) AND THERE WERE NO HIDDEN EXTRAS. I ordered a simple wreath from the florist recommended on the Web site, which was delivered directly to CREMDIRECT the night before the funeral. The florist 'Tallulah Blooms' offer a wide range of products and the fact they delivered these to CREMDIRECT took all the stress out of the situation (this being one less thing to worry about).
My brother's funeral was held on Friday 22nd March 2013, which of all mornings, just happened to be the morning when the North West of England received a LARGE AMOUNT OF SNOW. I was really worried that the service would be canceled, but received a reasuring phone call to say the Hearse was on its way and everything was going ahead as planned. I am truly grateful for all of the staff who turned out in those dreadful conditions and made the service possible. As for the service - my brother was not religious, therefore the idea of a Humanist Celebrant to conduct the service suited our needs. Fiona did an excellent job of celebrating my brother's life which included some lovely poems some of which appeared to have been written just for him.
The death of any family member is obviously not a pleasant experience, but if you are planning a cremation you can certainly ease the financial side of things by using this funeral director. This is the first time I have ever had to arrange a funeral and in my experience I would certainly recommend CREMDIRECT to anyone.
