A short, small funeral for up to 12 people to attend

Our intimate funeral offers a cremation where a small group of family and friends can be present in the chapel. This simple cremation costs significantly less than a traditional funeral.

You will be welcomed inside by our Chapel Attendant where a piece of music of your choice can be played. You will then have a few minutes for private reflection and the chance to share a final few moments to say goodbye.
