Holding a direct cremation at Birmingham Crematorium

A direct cremation with Simplicity Cremations allows you to choose how, when and where you say goodbye to your loved one who has passed away, without being constrained to a traditional funeral. It can protect you and your family from the added emotional and financial strain of organising a full service and it will allow you to arrange a memorial at a time and place of your choosing.

About Us

Birmingham Crematorium is situated conveniently by Perry Barr town centre and close to the beautiful surroundings of Perry Park. The crematorium was originally opened in 1903 by Sir Henry Thompson, the first president of the Cremation Society, and has been delivering cremations with compassion ever since.


Our peaceful gardens of remembrance offer a variety of personalised memorials for you to choose from including roses and private gardens. Our memorial staff can show you around the gardens at any time and help you to make your choice of memorial. Our gardens are open 365 days a year.


The crematorium also has access for the disabled, disabled toilets, Braille service books and a hearing loop. 


Call Simplicity Cremations on 0800 484 0260 and we can assist you right away with arranging a direct cremation at Birmingham Crematorium.
