As a charitable organisation and in recognition of the increased concerns regarding funeral poverty in the UK, the Scottish Cremation Society is commited to keeping its cremation charges as low as possible.

The total adult cremation cost is £660 with no surcharge being applied for services on a Saturday morning or public holiday.

The service time is 45 minutes including time for access and egress.

We have also removed charges relevant to organist attendance as well as the fee previously levied for the ashes container for release purposes.
