A Simple Funeral includes all of the essential parts of a funeral service, including a coffin, chauffeur driven hearse, and fully trained Funeral Director. It's the perfect option if you are able to be a little more flexible on certain aspects of the funeral.

What does the Simple Funeral include?

Our Simple Funeral service includes:

  • An experienced and fully trained Funeral Director to personally oversee your chosen arrangements

  • A Park coffin with linings and fittings

  • Preparation, collection and distribution of all the required documentation and co-ordination of external payments for you that are necessary for the funeral to legally proceed

  • Transportation of your loved one in one of our chauffeur driven hearses directly to the crematorium or cemetery

  • Access to Dignity Legal Services (excluding Scotland, Jersey and Northern Ireland)
