Direct Cremation in Torquay

Cliffs of Torquay

In 2016, we began providing direct cremations in London as an economical alternative to traditional funerals. Now, our services extend all the way to the English Riviera, and residents of Torquay can enjoy our low-cost service too. 


Read on to learn more about direct cremation in Torquay with us. 


Alternatively, you can speak with our welcoming team directly by calling 0800 133 7961 or by sending an email to [email protected]. They can address any specific questions you may have and even begin arranging a direct cremation in Torquay for you.


What does offer in Torquay?


We offer direct cremations in the seaside town of Torquay. We take care of people who have died and arrange for them to have an individual and private cremation. These take place at our regional crematorium without any mourners present.


The upshot of direct cremation is that it saves our customers money because there is no accompanying funeral service. This has the added advantage of empowering friends and family to create their own highly personalised service to remember the deceased person. They can therefore organise a secular or religious ceremony in their own time that truly reflects the life of the person who has died. 


In addition to serving the community in Torquay, we extend our direct cremation service across Devon and all of England and Wales. 


How much is a direct cremation with

Take the first step

Answer a few questions and we'll give you an exact price with no strings attached. Alternatively you can also call our team directly on 0800 133 7961 for advice.

A direct cremation in Torquay costs £895 with no unexpected additional costs or upfront deposits. 


Our price is significantly less than the average cost of a traditional cremation in the UK at £3,885. But it is also below the price of other direct cremation services. We guarantee that you will not find a better deal for a professional and compassionate direct cremation in Torquay, or anywhere in England or Wales. 


What do direct cremations in Torquay include?


We include everything you need for a direct cremation within our £895 flat fee. This is to make things as smooth and easy for you during a turbulent and painful time. 


Within this price, we will collect your late friend or family member from any hospital or mortuary in Torquay or the wider area. Our experienced team will transport them to our regional crematorium, treating them with the utmost respect. 


At the crematorium, the deceased person will be provided with an environmentally-friendly coffin (we use sustainable materials wherever possible and our business is 100% carbon neutral). Then, early in the morning, we will perform the cremation for them. You will be told what time this will occur in advance. 


Finally, if you would like, we can have the ashes scattered in our Garden of Remembrance. This is located at our Torquay crematorium, making it convenient for you to visit and pay your respects. 


Extra services offers in Torquay 


Our clients in Torquay can benefit from a number of extra services. These are optional and incur additional fees but may make things more convenient for you. Some people opt to have the ashes hand-delivered to them to their door. This costs £91 and the ashes will arrive in a wooden urn complete with an engraved nameplate. 


Moreover, in some situations, the deceased person may not be in a hospital or mortuary, for example, if they have passed away at home or in certain nursing homes. If this is the case then we can arrange for collection from any location in Torquay. However, this does incur a further fee of £250 as it requires partnering with a local funeral director.


There are other services you can add on available on our What’s included page. 


If you would prefer to organise an attended funeral, you can also arrange this with Willow Lake Funeral Directors in Torquay. 


Other considerations

You will not need to register the death yourself if the coroner has been involved as they will do this for you. You can, however, pass on our contact details to the coroner and we can liaise with them for you. A list of coroners in Torquay and Devon is available below. 


We have also provided a complete guide to what to do when someone passes away and more specific instructions on what to do when someone dies in a hospital, at a care home, at home or in a hospice that you may find useful.
