A Simplicity Cremation may be simple, but it's far from basic. We offer everything from just the essential service at £1,095 to an attended direct cremation that allows for a small number of people to witness the committal.

Simple, Direct Cremations

At Simplicity we offer a variety of affordable, and dignified direct cremation packages. We believe everybody deserves a respectful, compassionate and dignified farewell, and we deliver this to the highest possible standards. Our essential package caters for the minimum services required for a direct cremation and starts at just £1,095. We also offer broader packages depending on your requirements.

A simple alternative to a costly funeral

A full service funeral can be an expensive occasion that takes time and effort to arrange.

You’ll often need a Funeral Director and a whole team of staff to co-ordinate the required services, vehicles and personnel, book the time with the crematorium, deal with paperwork, manage tributes and announcements and ensure everything runs smoothly on the day. And then there are also additional costs for items such as flowers, service cards, music, maybe a memorial or headstone and often a wake. It will usually take quite a few face-to-face meetings to arrange, not to mention several thousands of pounds.

Doing the right thing, without all the fuss

At Simplicity Cremations, we don’t want to take away the sentiment and remembrance that comes with a traditional funeral service, but we do believe there is an alternative way. A way that does things right, that ensures a respectful cremation, and then allows you to tailor your personal tribute to be just how you want, where you want and when you want. Just without the high costs.


It means us carrying out all the practical elements of the direct cremation and then returning the ashes to you upon request for your own remembrance.

What you get with a Simplicity Cremation

While we don’t offer traditional funerals and the majority of elements that go hand-in-hand with them, Simplicity Cremations understands that clients are still looking for flexibility in the services on offer.
