We are Scotland’s first not-for-profit funeral directors. We offer simple, direct cremations. If you need help we promise to take care of you.
A direct cremation is an alternative, more flexible option with no service at the crematorium. People often wish to “do their own thing”, holding their own memorial service at a time, date and location of their choosing.
We are an award-winning funeral directors and cover all of mainland Scotland. We are the country’s only not-for-profit funeral directors. All the practicalities can be arranged by us without any fuss, leaving those grieving free to say farewell how, where and when is right for them.
But we are much more than just funeral directors: we offer emotional support, practical advice and are lead campaigners in ending funeral poverty.
We now also offer pre-pay funerals to better give you and your family piece of mind that everything is in place.
You can call our team on 03000 113 311 anytime 24/7 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the service we provide, a full list of prices or for information about planning your own funeral see our Plan a Cremation page.
We also have a special helpline for anyone considering claiming Funeral Grants or Benefits. This isn’t just for people who are using our service – we will help anyone facing financial problems because of a funeral. Many people are not aware that they are eligible, if they are then they won’t have to pay a penny for a funeral with us and they will get some money back to cover travel or a celebration of life. See our Funeral Costs Helpline page and Funeral Benefits page.
We also campaign for fairness in funerals in Scotland – fighting the problems and debt caused by UK Government funeral benefits policy and by the predatory parts of the For-Profit funeral industry. You can follow our campaign on Facebook or sign up to receive our newsletters at the side of the page.
Any profits are always reinvested in helping people in Scotland’s poorest communities who struggle to cope with bereavement. All donations are safeguarded by going through Community Renewal Trust, the registered charity which owns Caledonia Cremation.
