‘Unattended’ Direct Cremation – from £1100

Our ‘No Fuss’ Cremation – from £1100

Also known as ‘Direct to Cremation’ service

Important Note: When comparing with other companies offering cheap direct cremation services please bear in mind that your loved one remains here with us in Brighton and is cremated using local crematoriums. It is always worth asking other companies where your loved one will be cremated. This means that your fees are supporting a local business and the Local Authority.

The Funeral Director Industry associations require their members to offer a basic cremation only funeral or Direct Funeral, with a given specification as part of their code of practice.

However it has been officially reported in a recent Which? survey, that in spite of this requirement, many choose not to offer this option, unless the client specifically asks for it.

We are one of the few Brighton Funeral Directors who, for the sake of transparency and integrity, want you to be aware of all our funeral service options. These are especially suitable to those in need of a ‘simple’ and low cost funeral option.

Our ‘No Fuss’ funeral is an affordable alternative to the traditional funeral, which separates the ceremony from the cremation and leaves families free to arrange a memorial or celebration of life service away from the crematorium and in their own time.

We have two prices for our ‘No Fuss’ funeral option, depending on the where your loved one is collected from.

Arrangements can be made without you needing to visit us

Thank you for a memorable send off for a close friend. Philip did a fantastic job at short notice given the circumstances. The last I could do was leave a short note of recommendation.
