Our funeral services

Our Full Service Funeral allows you to personalise every aspect of the funeral, whilst the Simple Funeral is suitable for those who can be a little flexible with the details. Alternatively, we can guide you through some low-cost cremation options available.

Direct Cremations from £995

You may alternatively prefer a direct cremation, a lower cost and family-led alternative to a traditional funeral. You can choose from a selection of cremation options to celebrate the life of your loved one your own way. No matter what choices you make, you can be sure that the service you receive will be of the highest quality.

Direct Cremations from £995

We are here to guide you through your funeral choices. All Direct Cremation packages include cremation fees, doctor's fees, provision of a simple coffin, transportation of the deceased in specialised vehicles and care of the deceased in a professional mortuary facility until the day of the funeral.

The Unattended Funeral from £995, also known as a Direct Cremation is ideal for those who prefer a simpler affair and those who want to have the cremation now without any attendees, and a service later, on their own terms. Other cremation options include a service with twelve or more attendees, but without the reassuring face-to-face guidance of a funeral director.

From Jane who took the first call after Auntie had died, to Sally who dealt admirably and meticulously with all the local, detailed arrangements at the Oadby office, nothing was too much trouble. The open invitation to 'ring us if you want to know more, or think of anything we haven't covered' was sincerely meant, and gave me a feeling of confidence throughout the process. The whole journey throughout was seamless and faultless. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
