A Simple Funeral is a less traditional funeral focused on a celebration of life with a family led service at a crematorium. A simple funeral is a more affordable, fundamental-only approach when compared with a Traditional Funeral. Essentially Simple Funerals follow the same structure as Traditional Funerals, however, they come with a lower price and with less pomp and ceremony, such as the coffin will already be in the crematorium chapel on the catafalque before the mourners arrive for the service. This is a great option for those who wish not to be constrained by traditional requirements or expectations, and instead are seeking a personalised option with a lower price tag. They can be arranged before time for those who want to arrange their own funeral, or by family members wishing to say farewell to their loved one.
The Simple Funeral includes all our funeral director fees, advice on registration and certification, bringing the deceased in to our care (out of our office hours additional fee applicable), a standard veneered coffin, visiting in the chapel of rest, cremation fees (up to £995), doctors fees. The cremated remains are returned to the family in a simple urn or can be scattered at the crematorium with or without the family present.
There are many ways to hold a Simple Funeral, and there may be many suggestions we at County Funerals can make to help keep costs lower and arrangements more straightforward.
