Low Cost Funerals

We understand that some families, for whatever reason, may want a simple no-frills service, which allows them to say goodbye in their own way.  

We offer two fixed price simple options with restrictions - an attended funeral service at a crematorium of your choice in London, or a unattended cremation service at a crematorium in North London.

Please get in touch and we can talk through the options.

Simple Cremation - Unattended - £1500

A Simple Cremation is also known as a direct cremation.  The person who has died is cremated with no funeral service or ceremony and no one in attendance but the Poetic Endings team.  
This service is suitable for families who don't wish to attend the cremation but would like to hold a memorial service with the ashes at a later date.
