Can I have a small funeral for a few people to attend?
Simplicity offers small funerals for up to 12 people to attend.
If you are looking for a small funeral service to say goodbye to your loved one, a Simplicity Intimate Funeral could be the right option for you.
Not all direct cremations are the same; a Simplicity Intimate Funeral allows up to 12 people to attend the committal, offering a simple funeral for your loved one.
Our intimate funeral offers a small number of friends and family a short time inside the chapel at one of our preferred crematoria nearest to the place of rest, on a date of our choosing. They are usually held at 9am. The attendees will be welcomed into the chapel and given a short time to say a few words or reflect as they wish.
A small funeral can be arranged with the minimum of fuss, it includes all of the practicalities including the provision of a simple coffin, doctor’s fees for medical papers, collection from hospital and transportation to the crematorium in a specialised funeral vehicle.
It does not involve any formal ceremony or service; it is at the family’s discretion to organise any other proceedings such as the presence of a minister or floral tributes if they so wish. We will put you in contact with a fully qualified chapel attendant so you can make the necessary arrangements prior to the cremation. Following the cremation, the ashes will be returned to you in a simple container.
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 telephone lines are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our local team will then contact you to make the necessary arrangements and meet you at a time and place convenient to you to complete any required paperwork.
Simplicity Cremations will ensure your loved one is treated with the care and respect they deserve, and we’ll be here to support those left behind with access to a 24 hour bereavement counselling service. To talk to one of our advisors today, call 0800 484 0260.
