Funerals without the fuss

At Simplicity we offer a variety of affordable funerals for those looking for an altogether simpler affair. While we don’t want to take away the sentiment and remembrance that comes with a traditional funeral service, we do believe there is an alternative way.

Whether you're looking for an unattended direct cremation or a more modern family-led funeral, we can deliver a respectful, compassionate and dignified farewell for your loved one without the high price tag.

Our nationwide network of facilities and crematoria ensure a consistently high quality of care, teamed with decades of expertise in funeral services.

A simple alternative to a costly funeral

A traditional 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.

 

WHAT YOU GET WITH A SIMPLICITY CREMATION

Simplicity take care of the practicalities with the use of our professional staff and nationwide network of facilities, allowing the families to focus on the more personal touches. Without the pallbearers, the procession and some of the other more traditional elements of a funeral, Simplicity offers a more cost-effective, simple affair with the focus on the service itself.

 

To keep things simple, we have created three packages to choose from based on the number of people you'd like in attendance, with the ability to add on other items should you wish.
