Our team has been delivering Funerals on a Budget to families for over a decade and we believe everyone has the right to a dignified and respectful send-off regardless of money and financial circumstances.

What does a simple funeral cost?

If you’re happy to choose a simple and limited funeral service (including dates and times) then our costs start from £1,500. This doesn’t include any optional extras available for the funeral. This figure is for UK residents only.

Will you provide me with a funeral director?

Yes, of course. Each funeral director has years of experience managing simple and traditional funerals. It’s essential that our team is trained to the highest of standards - making your low cost funeral one that’s full of care and attention.

What ways can I pay?

Payment can be made by debit or credit card over the phone or by bank transfer.

Please note that payment in full is required before we may complete any funeral services for you.

Do I need to manage any funeral arrangements?

No, the funeral will be managed by our experienced team of funeral directors. On the day of the funeral, we will manage the entire process. From transportation to burial. Our service offers a completely hands-off approach for you and your family.

Are simple funerals easier than a traditional funeral?

A simple funeral has less option to choose from. This means that you can stop worrying about the little things. The funeral will only consist of the essentials to make the burial memorable yet without some of the additional extras of traditional funerals.
