Simple Funeral

As a member of The National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) this service is offered in line with their code of practice. All NAFD members offer the Simple Funeral although charges may differ.

Why choose a simple funeral?

 Simple funerals are generally for: 

• People who still want a traditional funeral where they can attend but do not feel they need or want to have any choice or additional options. 

• People who cannot afford a Tailored funeral. Because of its basic nature, simple cremation is the cheapest traditional funeral option. 

What happens at a simple funeral?

 We will provide our professional services and make the funeral arrangements, provide necessary staff for the funeral, and a simple coffin that is suitable for either burial or cremation. We will choose the day and time of the cremation/burial. You will be able to visit the person who has died at our funeral home although this is limited to a set time of our choosing during office hours. We will organise a suitable minister if required who will discuss the content of the service with you. There is provision of a hearse for transportation to the nearest crematorium or cemetery. 

In the case of a simple cremation the service will take place in the crematorium chapel. The ashes can be scattered at the crematorium or returned to you. 

In the case of a simple burial the service will take place at the graveside during the Interment. 

No other services can be added to The Simple Funeral
