Our Small Attended Cremation Plans offer a choice of two respectful family-led services.
Our Intimate Cremation Plan includes a 10 minute service with up to 8 attendees. For those with a larger family or close circle, our Private Cremation Plan offers a 20 minute service for up to 20 attendees.
Both services are family-led, giving loved ones privacy to share special memories, see the coffin at the crematorium and have the chance to say goodbye before the cremation. Mourners may choose to listen to a piece of music in honour of the deceased or simply be together for a few moments of quiet reflection.
* Price advertised is for a 50 year old paying over a 10 year period. Total cost is £3,044.60 and includes administration fees. ** Price advertised is for a 50 year old paying over a 10 year period. Total cost is £3,431 and includes administration fees.
Alternatively, for those who would like to be respectfully cremated without attendees, we also offer our Unattended Direct Cremation Plan. Or if you would like more people present, our Simple Funeral Plan includes a full-length service and an unrestricted number of mourners.
If you would like to arrange a funeral service straight away for a loved one who has passed we can support you with your arrangements.

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 one of our Small Attended Cremation Plans. 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 your plan, 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 funeral service and necessary paperwork.
The ashes can either be scattered at the crematorium or personally returned by our team within 14 days.
We keep your money safe in a trust fund or "whole of life" policy from regulated provider Scottish Friendly.
After the funeral (attended by up to 8 or up to 20 close loved ones), we carry out the cremation with care and dignity.
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.

You can see how we compare to other funeral providers in the market with our comparison table.
The cremation service will take place early morning Monday to Friday.
When the time comes, our compassionate team will liaise between the person arranging the funeral and the chosen crematorium to find a suitable date and time.
All of our ashes are returned in a simple biodegradable container which can be upgraded to a wooden urn for an additional cost.
You’ll typically receive your documents within five working days of taking out the plan.
A family-led funeral is a funeral service led by the attendees rather than a celebrant or officiant. The funeral service can contain readings given by attendees or a eulogy from someone close to the deceased. Mourners can sit and listen to music in honour of the deceased or simply sit together quietly to reflect on their loved one's life.
