Our family want to book a direct cremation and want the ashes scattering at Pontefract Crematorium is this possible? 

In most cases we perform direct cremations in the Hull area which helps keep the cost a lot lower. We return ashes promptly after the cremation has taken place for free throughout Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

It is usually the case that scattering ashes at the crematorium where the cremation took place is free but scattering at another crematorium may incur charges.
