The ‘No Fuss’ Cremation – From £1,400 (all inclusive)

Simple & Private

Also known as ‘Direct to Cremation’ services

pic-introThe 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.

For transparency and integrity reasons, we want you to be aware of all our funeral service options. These are especially suitable to those in need of a simple 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 the ‘No Fuss’ funeral option, depending on the level of personal care of the deceased that is required.

1) ‘No Fuss’ option with personal hygiene care          Price £1,750 (all inclusive)

We do not embalm or use any unnecessary invasive treatments, but we do cleanse the body and dress in either own clothes or wrap in calico cotton sheeting, leaving the body in the most natural condition.

  • Personal Hygiene care of deceased
  • Viewing in our Family Viewing Room, within office hours if required

2)  ‘Absolutely No Fuss whatsoever!’ option          Price £1,400 

 Our Lowest price ‘simple’ option

This option is for those who have expressed a wish NOT to be unnecessarily handled in any way, or those who insist that their loved ones are left in their complete natural state.  In which case we will simply only fulfill what is necessary, ensuring complete respect of any personal wishes.
