Whether it’s the increase in the cost of funerals, or because families are looking for a more personal ceremony, it’s clear to see that DIY funerals are on the increase. We explore how Simplicity Cremations can help you create a family-led funeral for your loved one.  

A DIY Funeral could save you thousands  

DIY funerals are not for everyone. Some people need the guidance and advice of a Funeral Director to help make arrangements and organise the day. However, if you are keen to create your own funeral for a loved one, opting to manage the funeral arrangements yourself can save you thousands. 

 

One of the most important things to consider is where your loved one will rest until the funeral. Unless you have the correct facilities at home, opting for a Simplicity Cremation could be the best option. Prices start at £995 and include the collection of your loved one, transport to the crematorium, provision of a simple coffin, cremation fees and doctor's certificate fees. 

 

Most of our families find this to be the most affordable funeral, allowing them to celebrate the life of their loved one in their own way.

 

Celebration of life

Opting to have a simple cremation service allows families to celebrate the life of their loved one, the way they would have wanted.

 

We offer two attended funeral options. Our intimate funeral allows up to 12 people a short time in the chapel. Our full attended funeral allows for a full length family-led service with no limit on the number of attendees.

 

Some families opt for a DIY funeral as they would prefer to reminisce together in their own way, at a time and place away from the crematorium. In this case, our unattended direct cremation may be the right option for you. The committal takes place supervised by a qualified chapel attendant, without any mourners present.

 

We’ve heard of many fitting memorials over the years, both to follow a service in the chapel or instead of. We’ve listed a few below;

 

Sunset Beach Walk

Some families opt to scatter their loved ones ashes at sea, in their favourite beach location.

Celebration in the Park

Choose to remember their life with a family picnic in their favourite sunshine spot. 

Family BBQ

You can choose to hold a memorial at home, inviting family and friends for a more informal celebration of life.
