Thankyou for taking such great care of my husband Mark from the care of the people that collected him to the lovely man that brought Marks ashes home to me you have all been so helpful & friendly through this awful time such a great service
I can’t recommend Pure Cremation highly enough. They have been brilliant and the whole process has helped me with coming to terms with the death of my mother during the Corona Virus pandemic. From the evening I phoned after mum had passed away and I spoke to a lovely lady through to the delivery of the ashes today by a very courteous gentleman. Such a professional, compassionate service at such a very reasonable cost. Thank you.
I was looking after my father who had a terminal cancer diagnosis; he didn't want a full funeral and had just requested a close family scattering of ashes. We decided on a basic cremation package. I did a lot of research on the net regarding companies and read many reviews before making my decision. I spoke to Pure Cremation on the phone and arranged things so that when I needed them everything was set up. They were very courteous and highly professional at all times, they inform you of all aspects of the process and took so much stress out of a difficult situation. I would highly recommend them.
During this difficult time, they have been nothing but considerate to our family and our needs. The person delivering outle mon after her cremation was amazing and so ethical. Honestly highly recommended, without sound cheesy. They were amazing. Anyone dealing with this difficult time may you use this service as it was nothing but a blessing.
“I can’t thank Pure Cremation enough for taking care of my fathers cremation. A traditional funeral was not for my dad and this was a great alternative. They were compassionate and understanding and went above and beyond. I couldn’t recommend them enough.”

It's lovely to hear that our wonderful team have given the help you needed at such a difficult time. Take care, and kindest wishes to you both. Catherine Powell
“When our family decided that a direct cremation was best for us as our father was in a care home, we were keen to choose a company who would fulfil our needs in a caring and professional way. Pure a Cremation more than lived up to our expectations from the day of the death and collection of the body by polite and respectful drivers, by phone in the days that followed as well as the return of the ashes a few weeks later by their own driver at a time that suited us. The whole experience was made easier by their helpful and professional staff and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking of this way of making funerals more personal.”

“I am writing on behalf of my son. Pure Cremation looked after my husband and the service and kindness we as a family received was exceptional during such a difficult time. Zoe looked after us so well. The service was just what we wanted, simple with no pomp and ceremony but a very moving and beautiful time when we all could remember my husband and celebrate his life. We had people watching from New Zealand and America and everyone commented on what a lovely and moving service. Today I picked up the memory stick of the service and was so moved that it came in a presentation box. Something I will always treasure. Thank you so much.”
“I would recommend Pure Cremations to anyone.. it’s hard to loose somebody and have to deal with all that goes on after their death, choosing Pure Cremations was the best thing I did, they did everything and more and kept me up to date with what was going on.. absolutely excellent”
“In times of great emotional stress following the loss of someone very close, this company show remarkable compassion, grace and respectful professionalism in everything they do. A true credit to a British company whom you hope never to have to use, but are extremely grateful to when you do.”
“From the first phone call, we found the staff to be very sympathetic yet professional at this very difficult time. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything was explained well, and we were guided through each step of the way. We chose to hire the Oak Room, and attend the beautifull Charlton Park Crematorium, and were very impressed. On the day it was everything we hoped for, peaceful, intimate and a perfect way to say our farewells. Finally, the hand delivery of the ashes we thought was a wonderfull touch. We would highly recommend Pure Cremation to anyone in similar circumstances.”

“Pure Cremations was recommended to me after the death of my uncle and the process was straight forward to deal with. They had to keep hold of my uncle's ashes and wait for a sea casket to be delivered to them, transfer the ashes and send to the Naval Dockyard in Portsmouth. This was done efficiently and thanks go to Peter for his advice and help with a potentially tricky situation. Highly recommended and would use them again without hesitation.”
“I had got some quotes on funerals, they were all horribly expensive. I also didn't much like the restrictions of crematoriums, generally a half hour conveyor belt arrangement, difficult to get really personal in that time. By chance I happened across Pure Cremation. The price was very good, affordable even. Not only that but the fact that I chose not to have an attended cremation meant we had more money to spend on a good memorial at home once the ashes of my Dad arrived home.
Now, me and my sister live in differing counties so I drove to the offices and collected half Dads ashes in an urn I provided myself and the remainder were sent to my sister included in the price.
Having visited the premises I can say that it is beautiful, right near a cricket ground and not far from where they made Downton Abbey in lovely countryside. The service is held in a lovely modern location and there is plenty of parking. All the staff I dealt with were really helpful and 'human'. I never felt like I was asking too many questions or wasting their time or that I was just a number to them.
This sort of thing isn't for everyone. For many, myself included, it is not local. But if you are looking for value, don't mind an unattended cremation (or don't mind travelling), it's excellent.
I took my friend along, I am his next of kin and after seeing it he's told me that he also wants an unattended cremation with Pure Cremation.”
