What is the cheapest funeral I can have?
The cheapest funeral we offer is an unattended direct cremation. With no interaction from a Funeral Director, you can expect to pay much less than you’d pay for a traditional funeral.
How does a low cost funeral work?
An unattended funeral by Simplicity Cremations costs just £995. This service is also referred to as a direct cremation or a cremation without ceremony.
Arranging a direct cremation is a straightforward process. Our dedicated team of funeral professionals take care of organising the practical elements of the cremation and will contact you with regards to completing the legal paperwork required for the cremation to take place.
Our lowest cost funeral offering does not include a formal service, a procession or the provision of a hearse. Your loved one will be collected from their place of rest at a time convenient to us and taken into care at one of our mortuary facilities, where they will be cared for and prepared for the cremation. We will provide a simple wood effect coffin, and transport the deceased to the crematorium in a specialised funeral vehicle. The coffin will be placed in the chapel, before being committed for cremation, supervised by the chapel attendant. The committal takes place without the presence of mourners.
Following the cremation, the ashes will be scattered in our garden of remembrance, or can be returned to you on request.
