Can I Have A Small Funeral For A Few People To Attend?
Yes, Simplicity Cremations offers small funerals for up to 12 people to attend.
If you are looking for a small funeral to say goodbye to your loved one, a direct cremation could be the right option for you.
Not all direct cremations are the same; an attended Simplicity Cremation allows for up to 12 close family and friends to attend the committal, offering a simple funeral for your loved one.
Our intimate funeral offers a small number of friends or family half an hour inside the chapel at our of our preferred crematoria on a date of our choosing. They are usually held at 9am and the attendees have time inside the chapel to reflect as they wish.
A direct cremation can be arranged with the minimum of fuss, it includes all of the practicalities including the provision of a simple coffin, doctor’s fee for medical papers, collection from hospital and transportation to the crematorium in a specialised funeral vehicle.
It does not involve any formal ceremony or service; it is at the family’s discretion to organise any other proceedings such as the presence of a minister or floral tributes if they so wish. We will put you in contact with a fully qualified chapel attendant so you can make the necessary arrangements prior to the cremation. Following the direct cremation, the ashes can be returned to you on request.
We know organising a small funeral is something most people will be unfamiliar with, so all it takes is one phone call to start the process. Our telephone lines are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our local team will then contact you to make the necessary arrangements and meet you at a time and place convenient to you to complete any required paperwork.
Simplicity Cremations will ensure your loved one is treated with care and are also on hand to support those left behind with access to a 24 hour bereavement counselling service. To talk to one of our advisors today, call 0800 484 0260.
