The Simple Funeral

Our Simple Funeral Service offers a simple low cost funeral, at a crematorium or cemetery of your choice, within the Greater Manchester area*.

We know that some families and friends are worried about the expense of a funeral, or may wish to have only a basic service from their Funeral Director. We can provide a low cost funeral service to the family and friends of those who have passed away, and this service comes with the same dignity and care you would expect from an already established Funeral Service.

What is the cost?

The cost of a simple funeral is fixed at a fair price of £1450.00 plus disbursements

The disbursements include the crematorium or cemetery fees, the minister or celebrants fee and the medical certificates if the funeral is a cremation.

What does the service include?

Our professional service includes attendance to all necessary arrangements, administration and legalities, liaising with crematorium staff, hospitals, medical practitioners, ministers and clergy, transportation of the deceased from the place of death to our Chapel of Rest, the provision of an oak veneered coffin and gown, and a hearse for transportation to the crematorium on the day of the funeral.

There is no extra charge for any commercially available music you may desire: This is included.

We do not charge for home visits.

What is the difference between this service and a more expensive funeral?

The cost of a funeral depends on many things, much depending on personal choice. This service is offered so we can provide a dignified and respectful funeral at a fair price but without many of the additional services and costs. Services not included in our simple funeral are embalming/viewing of the deceased in the chapel of rest, provision of additional funeral transportation, the provision of funeral refreshments, newspaper notices, flowers, and other items or services not specifically included above. This is a service offered in its own right and we are not able to add or remove services to it. If you would like to explore a more comprehensive service then we would of course be happy to discuss that with you also.

To arrange a funeral, we can visit you at home or, if you prefer, you can come and visit us at our established funeral home in Whitefield, Manchester (2 minutes from Junction 17 off the M60).

We do not charge for home visits.

There are no hidden extras or fees, just one simple fixed and fair price.
