Puma Private Equity has exited its stake in portfolio company, Pure Cremation, which doubled in size each year since launching in 2015.
Pure Cremation has been the driving force behind the UK-wide adoption of direct cremation, a straightforward and affordable alternative to traditional funerals, enabling loved ones to hold a more personal event to commemorate the deceased’s life at a later date.
Puma delivered £7.35m of funding in two rounds, in November 2017 and December 2018. Since then Pure Cremation has gone from strength to strength, doubling in size each year since launching in 2015 as the UK’s only dedicated direct cremation provider.
“Puma Private Equity has played a pivotal role in our ability to attract superb staff, develop robust systems and construct our state-of-the-art crematorium, Charlton Park. We are incredibly grateful for their support, expertise, and their confidence in Pure Cremation at the start of our journey.”
