Low Cost Funerals

This helpful and simple option is not only low cost but also offers an excellent way of having a ceremony in a place that is more personal to you and in your own time. In most cases the cremation takes place in the early morning with up to two people in attendance, enabling a later gathering or celebration of life event to be held at a special or more convenient place, without a coffin present. You could choose a familiar pub or club or even hold the event at home. We can organise this with you or help you to do this yourself – we are always here if you need any advice, please call us on 01622 746688 or o1233 650746.

Tailored for you

No coffin present

You can have a beautiful funeral service without a coffin present. An ashes urn or casket will replace the coffin as a focal point, thus opening up endless possibilities of where and when the service can be held.

No coffin present

from £1,795 + coffin + third party costs

Simple Morning Service

These days not everyone wants the full ceremony and decorum of a traditional funeral, which can also be very costly. We can offer an affordable and flexible alternative, which does not compromise on the quality of the service in any way. Simply by holding a funeral at an earlier time at certain Crematoria, we can save on cremation fees. This also enables us to arrive before the service and place the coffin in the chapel where it will be ready and waiting for the mourners to arrive. This package includes an ecological cardboard coffin made in Kent (which can be upgraded if desired) and a religious minister or a celebrant to conduct a full service.

Direct Cremation

In recent years people’s attitudes towards funerals have began to change. Although most of us opt for a cremation when the time comes, the thought of a service on the crematorium conveyor belt doesn’t always suit everyone. This is why we are offering a completely new approach, whereby the cremation takes place before the service. This not only makes the funeral more affordable, but it also gives families more freedom and time to plan something truly personal. We would be very happy to advise you by discussing the many options available to help you hold a meaningful ceremony.
