Can I have a cremation without ceremony?

At Simplicity we offer unattended direct cremations, also referred to as cremation without ceremony from £995. Simple, yet dignified, a cremation without ceremony is becoming a more popular funeral choice.


Is cremation without ceremony, right for you?

A traditional funeral service doesn't suit everyone. A cremation without ceremony suits those looking for the simplest form of funeral. There is no funeral service and the committal takes place without any mourners present.

It's easy to get confused with the terminology used within the funeral industry, a cremation without ceremony may also be referred to as the following:

- Direct cremation
- Direct funeral
- No service cremation
- No funeral cremation
- Cremation without service
- Cremation without a funeral

Cremation without ceremony is becoming an increasingly popular option for people looking to organise a celebration of life at a place of their choosing, away from the crematorium at a date and time that suits them. A cremation without service also offers considerable savings in comparison to the cost of a traditional funeral. Learn more about the cost of cremation and burial.


At Simplicity, we make it simple for you

A no service cremation is an affordable funeral that allows you to choose how, when and where you say goodbye to your loved one, without being constrained to the formalities of a traditional funeral.

All it takes is one phone call to start the process. We’re here to answer any questions you might have and start the process for you.

A few days prior to the cremation we will collect your loved one and prepare them on our premises. We’ll provide a simple coffin and transport the deceased to the crematorium in a specialised funeral vehicle, before the committal takes place supervised by a qualified chapel attendant.

After the cremation is complete, the ashes will be scattered in our gardens of remembrance or can be returned to you on request. We understand that this is likely to be a highly emotional time for you and you may be unsure of your wishes right now, so we can arrange a member of our team to talk you through the options.

Whatever your reason for opting for a cremation without ceremony, Simplicity are here to help guide and support you through the process.

From the initial phone call to the handling of ashes, our dedicated support team is on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


Not sure about a no service cremation?

If a cremation without ceremony doesn’t sound right for you and your family, you might consider one of our attended funeral options.

Our attended funeral offers families the freedom to organise a family-led service in the chapel, at one of our crematoria nearest to the place of rest at a time and date of your choosing.

If you would prefer something a little more low key, our intimate funeral allows up to 12 people to spend a short length of time in the chapel before the chapel attendant commits their loved one for cremation.

Whichever option you choose, you will have the full guidance and support of our telephone based funeral arrangement team.

If you are looking for a cremation with the option to attend, please see our Intimate and Attended Funeral options.
