Is a Simply service right for me? A direct cremation gives you the choice and freedom to decide how you say goodbye to your loved one who has passed away, without having to arrange a traditional funeral. You can then arrange a private memorial service or celebration that you feel is most appropriate for you, your family and friends.

For some families the cost of a traditional funeral can be expensive as there are so many different elements that need to be considered, such as flowers, limousines and orders of service. There is no need for these added extras for a Simply direct cremation, as we look after the practical side with dignity and compassion, just without the presence of any mourners. While our fees are significantly cheaper than a full funeral, you can be reassured that all aspects are carried out to our high professional standards and with the utmost respect.
Our aim is to keep our costs low without compromising the quality of care we provide. Most of our Simply funerals are arranged by phone, and there are a few legal and contractual documents for you to sign and return to us. There’s no need to organise any of the added extras that a traditional funeral would require.

If you would like to discuss your requirements in person, with a dedicated funeral professional who can help guide you through the process and paperwork, please get in touch.

You can arrange everything via telephone, email and post; although we do have to send some official legal and contractual documents for you to sign and return to us. This means you can deal with arrangements at your convenience without taking additional time off work or making a special journey to a funeral home.

Many people now decide that they don’t want a fuss when they pass away and want their family not to have any additional stress in making the funeral arrangements. A Simply direct cremation funeral gives you the opportunity to respect their wishes and then create a separate memorial, tribute or celebration of their life that’s most appropriate to you, their family and friends.
If you have a distant member of your extended family who passes away, you could still be their next-of-kin and have to make arrangements for their funeral. A Simply direct cremation carried out to our high professional standards, ensures that they will have a dignified farewell. If you wish, their ashes can be scattered at the crematorium’s Garden of Remembrance.
When organising a loved one’s send-off it can sometimes feel that the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Our Simply Funerals team can help guide you through the process and keep things straightforward.

There are many practical issues to manage when someone dies. Our Bereavement Advice line supports and advises people on what they need to do after a death.

Yes, that’s perfectly normal. Nursing or care homes may have instructed their nearest funeral director, or the family find that the local firm doesn’t offer the simple cremation they want.

Once you have asked us to carry out a direct cremation all you need to do is speak with the local funeral directors and confirm that you have decided to use Simply Funerals. We’ll get in touch with them to arrange to collect your loved one and ensure that the transfer is as smooth as possible. If you wish, we can add any of their transfer / care charges they have agreed with you into our invoice.

People claiming benefits may be entitled to help from the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP). The Gov.uk website Funeral Expenses Payment has helpful information. Depending on your current circumstances you could receive help in paying for costs of the doctor’s certificate of death, cremation fees and up to £700 for any funeral expenses including funeral directors’ fees and coffin transportation. For a full list of exactly what can be included please download the Funeral Expenses Payment claim form.
