We have decided to:
- Allow 40 minutes for each standard service at the crematorium so that families do not feel rushed;
- Allow an hour between each service so that there is time to pay final respects to a loved family member in a quiet and tranquil setting;
- Reduce the fee for off peak funerals (ie funerals which end before 10am and start after 4pm) to provide flexibility and the opportunity to reduce costs;
- Offer evening and weekend funerals at the same price as during the main part of the day – so there is no additional cost, and this can fit in with people’s busy working lives;
- Reduce the cost of the cremation if you have already held a funeral service in another location, and no service is to be held at the crematorium;
- Provide the opportunity to extend the funeral to provide a more personal and private service for an additional cost;
- Offer an opportunity to hold a memorial service without a cremation;
- Offer a two line entry in the book of remembrance free of charge for the first year of operation.
Fees have been set as follows and they will be reviewed annually:
Adult cremation (over 16 years): £899
Child cremation (up to 16 years): no charge
Off peak funerals (to finish before 10am and to start after 4pm): £799
Evening and weekend funerals: £899
No service required at the crematorium: £675
Extended service (total length of 1 hour 20 minutes) : £450
To personalise a funeral (service) we can offer extra time to enable this to happen by providing an extended service time for an additional £450.
Additional optional fees:
Scattering ashes only (witnessed by mourners): £32
Scattering ashes, with a service (40 mins) inside the crematorium: £84
Scattering ashes (no witnesses present): No charge if the cremation took place at Nene Valley Crematorium; other wise the charge will be £32 or £40, depending on where the deceased had lived
Scattering ashes – either witnessed or unwitnessed (where the deceased had not resided in the borough during the past year): £40
Memorial service with no cremation (40 mins) : £450 plus VAT
Nene Valley Crematorium will provide the opportunity to purchase a range of memorials within the grounds which will be designed to meet your needs. Fees for these will be published once they are available.
