What is the cheapest funeral possible?
The cheapest funeral possible would include only the essential elements of having a funeral. At Simplicity, the cheapest funeral possible is an unattended direct cremation. With no interaction from a Funeral Director, you can expect to pay much less than you’d pay for a traditional funeral.
How do I organise an inexpensive funeral?
Arranging an inexpensive funeral such a direct cremation is a straightforward process. Our dedicated team of funeral professionals take care of organising the practical elements of the cremation and will contact you with regards to completing the legal paperwork required for the cremation to take place.
What does a low cost funeral include?
This type of funeral does not include a formal service, a procession or the provision of a hearse to keep costs to a minimum. Your loved one will be collected from their place of rest at a time convenient to us and taken into care at one of our mortuary facilities, where they will be prepared and care for until the day of the cremation.
We will provide a simple wood effect coffin, and transport the deceased to the crematorium in a specialised funeral vehicle. The coffin will be placed in the chapel, before being committed for cremation, supervised by a qualified chapel attendant. The committal takes place without the presence of mourners.
Following the cremation, the ashes will be scattered in our garden of remembrance or can be returned to you on request.
Do you have other low cost funerals?
A direct cremation will not suit everyone. If you are looking for a low price funeral but are uncomfortable with the funeral taking place without any members of the family present, our attended funerals start from £1,395.
