Memoria Direct Cremation aka Low Cost Funerals Reviewed 2021

What is included in Prepaid Memoria Direct Crem Plans? 
June 2021 Memoria seem to have been sold to Darwin Bereavement Properties (Guernsey) Limited. Howard Hodson and his other directors have resigned to be replaced by Anthony Esse, Christopher Penney and Randi Weaver as company secretary.  Maybe it will be easier to get information under the new regime after being ignored repeatedly!  At the present moment I have no knowledge of any changes or reorganisations.


Memoria Direct Cremation
Low Cost Funeral Plans

The Memoria Direct Cremation Plan (they trade as Low Cost Funeral Plans) is for cremation only and does not include a service. As with all prepaid plans, the cost can be spread over monthly payments or paid as a lump sum.  If you want to know which is the “best buy” and get independent advice (free) call the Prepaid Funeral Review team on 0800 0588 240.)  If you want a service at the time, or a burial, this plan is unsuitable. Call us or browse the pages under the heading REVIEWS above. Or to learn more about types of plans, visit this page. We haven’t found Memoria to be overly helpful, despite repeated attempts to engage with them.
