Direct Cremation Service £1700

A fully inclusive cremation service separating the cremation from the funeral ceremony so a memorial or celebration of life can be held however and whenever you choose.

Woodland Wishes will organise and attend the cremation for you before the cremated remains "ashes" are returned to you.

There Are No Additional Costs.
