Can I organise my own ceremony at a cremation?
Yes, our attended funeral options offer you the freedom to say goodbye, your way.
No two individuals are the same, so why should their funeral be?
Each and every one of us is unique and our funeral should reflect that. A Simplicity Cremation gives you the freedom to organise a personalised farewell for your loved one without the expense.
Unlike most direct cremation providers on the market, we offer an attended funeral option that allows an unlimited number of people to attend the committal, with a full length slot in the crematorium.
Families can use this time to celebrate the life of their loved one with a befitting ceremony.
We’ve put together a few ideas on how to make the most of your time in the crematorium
- Play a collection of your loved ones favourite songs
- Read their favourite poem, or even better, write your own in their honour
- Read a chapter aloud from their favourite book
- Sing a song or play a musical instrument
- Prepare a tribute video or slideshow
- Simply spend the time telling stories and sharing fond memories of your loved one
Some people choose to engage the services of a minister or officiant as you would with a traditional funeral. We can provide advice on finding a minister or celebrant in your area.
For a relaxed atmosphere, you could discourage attendees from wearing traditional mourning colours. Instead, you could ask those attending to dress in your loved one’s favourite colour. Maybe the deceased was a huge football fan? Why not suggest guests pull on their favourite football shirt.
Little, personalised touches really can make all the difference.
Even if you’re looking for something a little more traditional, a Simplicity Cremation allows you to run things your way on the day.
Would you rather hold a memorial elsewhere?
We realise an attended funeral won’t suit everyone. If you’d prefer to organise a memorial in honour of your loved one at an alternative time and location away from the crematorium, you may find our unattended direct cremation a more suitable option for you.
