Can I have a cremation without ceremony?
Yes, at Simplicity we offer unattended direct cremations, also referred to as cremation without ceremony, for just £995.
Is cremation without ceremony, right for you?
A cremation without ceremony suits those families looking for the simplest form of funeral. There is no funeral service and the committal takes place without any mourners present.
This 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, on a day and time that suits them. A funeral of this type also offers considerable savings in comparison to the cost of a traditional funeral.
Whatever the reason for opting for a direct cremation, 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.
At Simplicity, we make it simple for you
A direct 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.
Once the initial arrangements have been made, our local team will give you a call to make all the necessary arrangements for your loved one. They will even meet you at a time and place convenient to you to complete the necessary paperwork required for the cremation to go ahead.
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.
Our unattended direct cremation costs just £995
Our direct cremation services are available throughout mainland Great Britain.
We also offer attended funerals
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.
