About our Simplest Funeral

As a small independent local family funeral directors, it means that we, unlike some of the larger corporate funeral companies we have a considerable amount of flexibility in what we are able to offer our clients and in the charges we make for those services. We are members of the NATIONAL FEDERATION OF FUNERAL DIRECTORS which means our premises, staff and working practices are all accredited and it also means that the majority of the funerals that we can offer come within the FAIR PRICE CHARTER.

As well as our other traditional funeral services, we offer a SIMPLE FUNERAL. This service is for those who wish to have a basic but dignified funeral, which means that there will be no church service or extras required. The funeral is offered with fixed services which cannot be added to and is offered at a fixed price, meaning no hidden extra costs (unlike a lot of other simple funerals offered).

We think our SIMPLEST FUNERAL offers extremely good value for money without compromising on our highest quality of service.
