Offered as a Direct to Crematorium service
Our Simple Cremation is a direct service where the hearse leaves from the funeral home and meets your family at the crematorium.
On the day of the funeral we will place the coffin in a traditional hearse and meet the family and attending mourners at the crematorium. The family can choose either a minister or celebrant and can choose the music that will be played during the service. After the service the ashes can either be scattered or returned to the family.
If you compare our simple service with other Funeral Directors you will see two important differences. Most Simple Funerals have clauses that say the funeral will be arranged at a time suitable to the Funeral Director. If they say they have a slot at 9am on Thursday, then you have to accept that. Other Funeral Directors may say that as it is a simple service, then no viewing of your loved one is possible.
We work with your family to arrange a suitable time and date for the Funeral Service. We also make our private visiting rooms / chapel of rest available for the family to be able to spend time with your loved one, although this only during our normal opening hours. A tasteful Light Oak effect "York" coffin is provided and your loved one can be dressed in their own clothes.
As your Funeral Director, we are here to advise you in making all arrangements. We are experienced with all the local crematorium practices. Please remember that we are here to help in whatever way we can to help you cope and adjust in your time of bereavement.
These are always very dignified and respectful services and follow traditional Funeral values. Our care and attention to every detail is always visible.
