Informal Funerals

If you’d like a family-led cremation that runs in a way that’s personal and meaningful to you, we’re here to help.

We’ve been offering family-led cremation service options in London and Surrey for nearly half a century. That’s almost fifty years of listening, caring and being here when you need our support the most.

Please don’t be worried that the day you want is out of reach because of your finances. We offer affordable cremation services and will do absolutely everything we can to make sure you have the day you want.

 

A no-fuss service is family led – no minister or celebrant – and is just quiet time in the crematorium chapel, where a choice of music can be played.

Some families sit quietly using the time to reflect, others read out personal tributes – or a final letter they wish they could have written. We can help advise.

This is private family time, that can offer a sense of comfort in a no-fuss but dignified way.

FAQs

Can a family member take the service?

Yes of course.  This could be very hard and emotional for family members to do but if you feel you are able to do it we would give you guidance prior to and on the day. 

Can I operate the music at the service?

Yes.  Most crematoriums have a downloaded music system and easy to operate.

 

What happens at the committal?

The committal is when you say farewell to your family member most crematoriums have a curtain that comes across the coffin but this is optional. 

Who will be there to guide me?

The funeral director will be there to guide you through the service, showing you into the chapel and will be in the chapel during the service and to show you to the flowers once the service has taken place.
