WHAT IS A SIMPLICITY CREMATION?

Funerals without the formality

At Simplicity we offer affordable funerals for those looking for an altogether simpler affair. Whether you’re looking for an unattended direct cremation or a more modern family-led funeral, we can deliver a respectful, compassionate and dignified farewell for your loved one without the high price tag.

Covering the essentials

We take care of the necessary parts of the cremation, giving you the choice to include only what’s important to you, helping save money and hassle compared to a traditional service.

How we’re different

An alternative choice

We let you choose how, when and where you say goodbye to your loved one, without being constrained to the traditions of a full funeral. Whatever your reason for choosing a Simplicity Cremation, we’ve got a funeral to suit your needs.

Why choose a Simplicity Cremation?

Personalise the funeral

Celebrate the life of your loved one in your own way, either during an attended funeral with a personalised family-led ceremony or hold a beautiful tribute with the ashes at a later date.

THE SIMPLICITY PROCESS

How it works

Arranging a Simplicity Cremation is an easy, straightforward process

Can I attend the cremation service?

Yes, when selecting one of our attended cremation packages.

Our intimate funeral allows a short time in the chapel to say a few words and witness the committal for up to 12 people. You will also have the option to play a piece of music of your choice. An intimate funeral will take place at 9am on an available date of our choosing, at a crematorium nearest to the place of rest.

Our attended funeral is suited towards those who are looking for a low key funeral with no limit on the number of attendees, allowing a full length service in the chapel with a ceremony organised by the family. We will put you in contact with the chapel attendant giving you the opportunity to discuss the running order of the service. The funeral will take place at a crematorium nearest to the place of rest, at an available time and date of your choosing.

A direct cremation does not offer any kind of funeral service or the presence of a minister or officiant, unless otherwise organised by the family.

Is it possible to view the deceased?

No, once we have taken someone into care, the direct nature of the service means there is no opportunity for viewing.

Will there be a funeral procession?

No, because the service is managed directly there won't be a traditional funeral procession.

Does a Simplicity Cremation have religious aspects

Our cremation service is suitable for all religions. We provide the cremation service without any religious aspects, allowing you to arrange your own religious service with your faith leader in the chapel or at a memorial at a later date if you so wish.

What will my loved one be dressed in for cremation?

Your loved one will be dressed in a simple gown when cremated.

In which areas is a Simplicity Cremation available?

A Simplicity Cremation is available everywhere in mainland Great Britain including Scotland (this excludes Northern Ireland, Scottish Isles, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands) through our nationwide network of offices and crematoriums.
