The ‘No Fuss’ Direct Cremation – from £915 plus disbursements

What we like to call our completely ‘No Fuss’ option

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

The Funeral Director Industry associations require their members to offer a Direct Cremation, with a given specification as part of their code of practice.

Our ‘No Fuss’ direct cremation 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.

Arrangements can be made without you needing to visit us
