THE FAMILY-LED FUNERAL
The Orchid Plan is a simple funeral plan that covers the costs of all the practical and essential elements of a cremation, without the need to pay for traditional ceremonial aspects you might not want. It enables your family to organise a personalised funeral service in the crematorium chapel, with help from our professional experts over the phone. Your family can choose the ceremonial format, music, visual tributes and selection of a minister or celebrant.
This funeral plan does not include some of the more expensive costs such as a procession with a hearse and limousines, which means we can provide our funeral services for much less than a traditional Funeral Director.
Care of the deceased
It’s important to understand what isn’t included in The Orchid Plan. This plan does not include:
* Medical certification fees. For deaths where a coroner investigation is required, there are no medical certifications fees. Also, changes to legislation in May 2015 mean there will no longer be a charge for a medical certification for any deaths registered in Scotland. Similar legal changes are being considered for the rest of the UK, so we do not include provision for these fees in our Plans. If the funeral takes place outside of Scotland, and a coroner is not involved, then if applicable, the medical certification fees should be paid by the next of kin or personal representative, when arranging the funeral.
UNDERSTANDING THE PLAN
Once your plan is set up, you can have peace of mind that we’ll keep your funds safe in a Funeral Trust Fund. We'll send your Planholder's pack in the post, along with a copy for you to share with your next of kin.
Planning your funeral in advance can not only help ensure your wishes are honoured when the time comes, but also relieves your loved ones from any stress or uncertainty over your funeral wishes.
When the plan is needed, your loved ones only need to make a single phone call to us and we'll start to make arrangements straightaway.
Was very efficient, I received all my paperwork in a timely manner. Information provided is very clear

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.
