Direct Cremation £1200 (includes cremation fee) We are now able to offer a direct cremation without service, for families who prefer to have no service at the crematorium. Instead, families can arrange their own personal goodbye or memorial at a later date when they disperse the cremated remains. Please note: as a direct (non-service) cremation does not include time for reflection and a goodbye at the crematorium chapel, information regarding the day the cremation takes place is provided only and no specific time is given on the confirmation. We reserve the right to choose which day the cremation will take place. The time the cremation takes place that day is at the crematorium’s discretion. Conveyance to the crematorium that day is at Anderson Funeral Directors Ltd.’s discretion. A funeral car or private ambulance will be used to transport the deceased. The coffin will be taken through the front door of the chapel and onto the catafalque before being taken through to await cremation. We reserve the right to choose the crematorium. A direct non-service cremation is payable in advance, in full. The cremated remains will be returned to the parlour, within seven days of cremation, for collection by the applicant (the person who signs the forms) or they can be collected by the family from the crematorium office (two days notice is required by Fife Council). The applicant will be provided with a confirmation of arrangements, before the date of cremation, for their own perusal, which will also be read out to them by a member of staff, and a receipted invoice will be provided when payment is made.
Pre-payment plans are available. Brochures are available on request.
From when we receive your call to the day of the funeral and beyond, help and guidance throughout the whole process will be provided. You do not need to wait until the Death Certificate is issued to call.
You have the right to choose the Funeral Director you wish.
