Our Simple Funeral Plan respectfully takes care of all aspects of the funeral arrangements and includes a full length funeral service led by a professional celebrant. Loved ones can come together to view the coffin, listen to music and readings in the deceased’s honour and reflect on their life.
Alternatively, we offer Small Attended Cremation Plans for those who would like a more intimate send-off with fewer attendees or our Unattended Direct Cremation Plan for a service with no attendees present.
All of our low cost funeral plans, including our Simple Funeral Plan, guarantee a modest and affordable send off without you having to pay for unnecessary extras.
Pre-paying for a funeral in advance protects your family from any future increases in the cost of a funeral or unexpected funeral bills. If you’ve decided that a Simple Funeral Plan suits your preferences, start the process of setting the plan up below.

Safeguard your future, remove the uncertainty about your wishes and relieve some of the pressure your loved ones may feel when arranging a funeral with our Simple Funeral Plan. You can also set up your plan online or call us on 01543 211997. We're here for you and your questions.
Once you've chosen one of our simple funeral plans, here's what to expect.
For peace of mind, you will receive a plan confirmation pack to store safely so you can focus on enjoying your life.
When the time comes, we help your family arrange the service, celebrant and necessary paperwork.
The ashes can either be scattered at the crematorium or personally returned by our team within 14 days of cremation.
We keep your money safe in a trust fund or "whole of life" policy from regulated provider Scottish Friendly.
After the funeral attended by your loved ones has taken place, we carry out the cremation with care and dignity.
We will provide a qualified celebrant or officiant from our approved network to conduct the funeral service. The celebrant cost is included as part of our Simple Funeral Plan.
If the person arranging the funeral would like a specific celebrant, we might be able to cover the cost of this too, but there may be additional fees to pay directly to the celebrant if they are not part of our network.
Attendee numbers for our Simple Funeral Plan are not restricted.
Our Customer Service Specialists can give you information about the exact seating and standing capacity of the chapel at your chosen crematorium. For especially large groups of mourners, many of our crematoriums also offer external viewing screens.
For plans payable over 5 or 10 years we incur additional administration expenses for collecting the monthly instalments and for the purchase and administration of a “whole of life” policy from Scottish Friendly - an authorised and regulated insurance provider. If you die after 12 months of the start of your funeral plan, but before you have paid all your instalments, there is nothing more to pay.
A funeral plan lets you choose and pay for a funeral ahead of time. Planning your own funeral protects your family from funeral costs and ensures your wishes are known for the type of funeral you'd like. If you're going to be the one making funeral arrangements for someone else in future, you can also take out a funeral plan for them for peace of mind.
When the time comes we'll carry out every part of the process and deliver the ashes to your family at no extra cost. Our funeral plans include cremation, fees, collection, care, return of the ashes and much more. For full details of what is and is not covered with our different funeral plan options, please read our funeral plan summary and terms & conditions.
