About Pure Cremation

Freedom to Choose

The Pure Cremation team has more than 30 years’ experience of serving the bereaved and the people that matter to them. Bryan and Catherine Powell carried out their first Pure Cremation in 2012 following a request from a client and by 2015 demand had grown so much they decided to concentrate exclusively on this style of funeral.

Since then the Powells have built an outstanding team, all equally committed to their original vision of simple care delivered to the highest standards. Together the Pure Cremation team is ready to serve thousands of families every year with their trademark kindness and attention to detail.

When we began getting calls from Northern Ireland residents, we made plans to offer our high quality, low-cost service here too.

Our Facilities

Our investment in your care

The Pure Cremation team’s expertise has enabled us to look carefully at every element involved in delivering an ultra-simple cremation at a sensible price without compromising on the care given. In fact, visitors to our headquarters tell us that we are “setting a new standard”.

However, we’re aware that direct cremation may attract novice providers who see this merely as a logistics operation. That’s why Pure Cremation is so keen to set the standard in the new area of service and why we’ve already invested millions of pounds in excellent staff, equipment and systems.

For example:

What we stand for

About the Pure Cremation Funeral Planning Trust

Your money is safe with us

The UK's leading funeral plan providers use Trusts to secure the funds needed to cover some or all of the future funeral expenses for their clients. We do too. We do, too.

If you’ve opted to pay in a single lump sum or over a fixed number of instalments then your money will be placed into a secure, independently managed Trust.

When the cremation is needed the Trust requires an invoice, proof of death and 2 Trustee signatures to release funds to pay for the service you have requested.
