How does it work?



We are available 24 hours a day. If you prefer, you can call us in advance to provide some basic information, so when the time comes there is less for you to worry about.



We will collect the deceased from anywhere in Great Britain and take care of them at our mortuary facilities. This includes suitable transport to the crematorium for cremation.



We take care of everything including the removal of artificial devices such as pacemakers and handling of paperwork. The cremation will take place at our trusted partner state of the art crematorium.


Ashes returned

Delivered on a day that suits you, usually within 21 days after cremation. Ashes are returned in a biodegradable urn that you can bury or use to scatter in a special location.



You are free to gather the people that matter, at a time that suits everyone, to celebrate the life of your loved one.

Additional costs you might need to pay

Doctors' fees £82

A fee is charged by a doctor to provide the medical cause of death certificate unless a post mortem is required. This is usually completed by the GP of the deceased. We will charge you this fee if applicable and deal with the doctors’ surgery on your behalf.

Urgent collection of deceased £250

We provide urgent 24 hour collection from anywhere that doesn’t have a mortuary facility. For example a personal residence, care home and some hospices.

XXL Coffin £300

If your loved one is heavier than 22 stone OR taller than 6’6” then we are likely to require a special order coffin. However, we will review each case individually.

I found Celebration of Life really very good. No fuss, much less expensive and allows for your own memorial later.
