How to arrange a low cost funeral
With the cost of the average funeral in the UK now exceeding £4000*, more and more people are searching for ways to organise the cheapest funeral. Our low cost funeral packages start from £995 and are available throughout mainland Great Britain.
How to save on funeral costs
Each and every one of us is unique, and a funeral allows an opportunity to reflect that. Not everyone wants a full service funeral and many do not see the value in some of the more traditional aspects. At Simplicity, we give you the freedom to organise a personalised goodbye for your loved one without breaking the bank.
Arranging a traditional funeral, will likely mean spending several hours with a Funeral Director discussing the arrangements. Funeral Directors put in a lot of hard work to provide the service you ask for which will ultimately be reflected in the final cost. In order to reduce funeral costs, it is possible to arrange a funeral without the assistance of a Funeral Director, a service Simplicity can provide. All funeral arrangements can be made over the telephone with help from our team of funeral professionals.
A cremation will typically cost less than a burial, so if funeral costs are a concern, you’d be best placed choosing a cremation. Along with the initial costs (often dependent on location), a burial could mean there will be ongoing costs if you’re expecting the cemetery to look after the plot for you. It is also important to investigate how long the lease of the plot is as ‘purchasing’ a plot only allows you the right to say who will be buried in that grave for a set period, often somewhere between 25 and 100 years.
Choosing a low cost funeral provider
A Simplicity Cremation provides you with all of the practical elements of the funeral, without the obligation to pay for traditional ceremonial elements you may not want. We have removed some of the most expensive elements including hearses, limousines and pallbearers, which means we can provide our funeral services for considerably less than the average cost of a funeral.
All of our funeral packages include the cremation fees and doctor’s fees, something not all providers will cover, provision of a simple wooden coffin, transportation in a specialised funeral vehicle and care at one of our high quality mortuaries.
Unfortunately, not all low cost funeral providers will operate to the same standards or include the same services. It is advisable to choose a provider with an established history and the right facilities.
Unlike many providers who will only operate within a specific area or may charge a fee outside of a certain radius, our services are available throughout the whole of mainland Great Britain.
Whilst our funeral costs may be low, rest assured you and your loved one will be treated with the utmost care and receive the highest levels of service. A Simplicity Cremation ensures everyone gets the respectful send off they deserve.
What’s the cheapest funeral you offer?
The cheapest funeral we offer is our unattended funeral; a direct cremation which takes place without a service beforehand without any mourners present.
The cost of a direct cremation from Simplicity is £995, although there may be an additional charge if your loved one needs to be brought into our care immediately.^
