Affordable Low Cost Funerals

 

In some cases a simple, no frills funeral service is all that is required.

 

Just because a simple service is all that is needed, doesn’t mean that it can’t be eco-friendly
and carried out with dignity and respect.

 

We offer a “direct cremation” service for an affordable
fixed £1150 including all disbursements and fees.

 

Our Enhanced Cremation service offers a more complete service
fixed £1650 including all disbursements and fees.
