WHAT IS AN INTIMATE FUNERAL?
Our Intimate Funeral offers a cremation where a small group of family and friends can be present in the chapel, and is an ideal way to say goodbye to a loved one who did not want a fuss when they were gone. 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.
We know organising a funeral is something most people will be unfamiliar with, so all it takes is one phone call to start the process. Our teams are available to help 24 hours a day, so there's always someone here to answer any questions you may have. For more information, read our step by step guide to organising an Intimate Funeral.
If you would like to plan ahead and arrange a small funeral for yourself or a loved one for the future, you can do this with the Magnolia Plan. A Prepaid Funeral Plan will allow you to protect your loved ones from rising funeral costs, as well as ensuring your funeral is carried out according to your wishes.
Our Intimate Funeral costs from just £1,395 and includes doctor's fees, cremation fees, provision of a simple wood effect coffin^, preparation for cremation in our quality mortuary facilities and transportation in a specialised funeral vehicle.

Our customer experience is very important to us and we strive to deliver a high quality service every time.
Was very efficient, I received all my paperwork in a timely manner. Information provided is very clear
No Location Provided
Would recommend . Would have liked to have known when the cremation was going to take place rather than after it happened.
I found Simplicity Cremations very helpful when I decided to take out a plan with them. They were very approachable and efficient. I feel that this type of plan is more me. It cuts out all the fuss and drama, and will save my family a lot of stress and upset, which is a difficult time at best. I would definitely recommend this type of plan for a no nonsense send off.
Easy to use service which is clearly explained and straight forward with a helpline to ask relevant questions.
No Location Provided
After my initial enquiry, they did not pressurise me into making a decision. Their documentation is clearly written and easily understood. Unless I am miraclously resurrected, I am unlikely to make a further purchase from them... I would certainly recommend them to anyone wanting a "no frills" disposal of their remains.
