Why choose a White Willow Cremation?
Many other direct cremation service providers will often advertise a low headline price which does not include necessities such as out-of-hours collection, delivery of ashes, doctor’s fees and more. This can often leave families hit with additional costs and stress. Our White Willow Cremation service provides you with the security of a final and affordable price to give you and your family peace of mind.
Frequently Asked Questions
We answer some of the most common questions our funeral directors receive:
Where will my loved one be taken?
If your loved one dies expectedly, they would be taken to rest at one of our funeral homes, located at; Heath in Cardiff, Malpas in Newport, or Station Road in Dinas Powys.
How long does it take to arrange a funeral?
Depending on the circumstance, an attended funeral usually takes between 2-3 weeks to arrange. Timescales may vary depending on if your loved one is taken into the coroner’s care and whether you are arranging a burial or cremation. Your funeral director will work with you to discuss a date for the funeral that works best for you.
When is payment due?
Once you have met with your funeral director and discussed your loved one’s wishes, payment is required to cover the cost of third-party disbursements before the funeral can be arranged. Once payment is received, a funeral date can be confirmed. The remainder of the balance will be required within 60 days of the funeral. If you are choosing a White Willow Cremation, full payment is due at the time of arrangement.
