Have an attended funeral with Simplicity Cremations from £1,395
Simplicity provides attended cremations that allow your family to attend the crematorium chapel for a short service before the committal.
An attended cremation is still cheaper than a standard cremation funeral because there isn’t a procession beforehand and family members would carry out the service themselves, avoiding the cost of a minister or celebrant.
Have a simple ‘send-off'
In 2019, people spent on average over £1,000 on flowers, limousines, venue hire and catering. If you want to make big savings on a cremation funeral, this is a good place to start.
The family could arrange their own transport, flowers could be kept to a minimum and the wake could be held in someone’s home free of charge.
Have a ‘Do It Yourself’ funeral
A Do It Yourself (DIY) funeral means family members would handle all the arrangements of the funeral instead of using a funeral director.
A DIY funeral would include the following arrangements:
- Caring for the deceased before the cremation
- Booking the cremation with the crematorium
- Organising the paperwork e.g. cremation certificate, medical certificate
- Sourcing and purchasing a suitable coffin or casket
- Arranging and holding the funeral service or ceremony
- Arranging or providing transport for the deceased to and from the crematorium
- Organising of the order of service, flowers, venue, catering and so on
This type of funeral may save you money but could also be stressful for the family particularly whilst they are grieving.

This may be more difficult with the threat of coronavirus still looming - but it’s possible to donate your body to science and won’t cost your family a penny.
Medical and scientific institutes across the UK accept body donors for anatomical examination.
