Total Simplicita - from £550 plus disbursements

The Total Simplicita arrangement is a Direct Cremation service.

This provides just cremation. There is no viewing, cortege, or any form of service with the coffin present.

This arrangement is most suitable for those families who prefer to hold their own form of 'goodbye', perhaps at a more appropriate time and place.

The ashes may be strewn in the crematorium grounds, or returned to the family.


Our fees include our professional services, removal of the Deceased from a hospital, hospice or mortuary within 20 miles and during normal office hours, the provision of a simple coffin suitable for cremation, appropriate shelter and care of the Deceased, preparation of necessary documentation and transfer to the crematorium.
