The 'No Fuss' Cremation - From £1,500

Fully Inclusive

Also known as ‘Direct to Cremation’ services

pic-introThe Funeral Director Industry associations require their members to offer a basic cremation only funeral  or Direct Funeral, with a given specification as part of their code of practice. However it has been officially reported in a recent Which? survey, that in spite of this requirement, many choose not to offer this option, unless the client specifically asks for it.

We are one of the few Brighton Funeral Directors who, for the sake of transparency and integrity, want you to be aware of all our funeral service options.  These are especially suitable to those in need of a ‘simple’ and low cost funeral option.

Our ‘No Fuss’ funeral is an affordable alternative to the traditional funeral, which separates the ceremony from the cremation and leaves families free to arrange a memorial or celebration of life service away from the crematorium and in their own time.

We have two prices for the ‘No Fuss’ funeral option, depending on the level of personal care of the deceased that is required.

1) ‘No Fuss’ option with personal hygiene care          Price £1,750

We do not embalm or use any unnecessary invasive treatments, but we do cleanse the body and dress in either own clothes or wrap in calico cotton sheeting, leaving the body in the most natural condition.


  • Collection within 10 miles (out of hours will incur an extra charge)
  • Personal Hygiene care of deceased
  • Viewing in our Family Viewing Room, within office hours if required
  • Conveying to crematorium of our choosing
  • Coffin suitable for cremation
  • Crematorium fee for 8.30 slot (no chapel use) on a day of our choosing
  • Doctors Fee

2)  ‘Absolutely No Fuss whatsoever!’ option          Price £1,500 

 Our Lowest price ‘simple’ option

This option is for those who have expressed a wish NOT to be unnecessarily handled in any way, or those who insist that their loved ones are left in their complete natural state.  In which case we will simply only fulfill what is necessary, ensuring complete respect of any personal wishes.


  • Collection within 10 miles (out of hours will incur an extra charge)
  • Conveying to crematorium of our choosing
  • Coffin suitable for cremation
  • Crematorium fee for 8.30 slot (no chapel use) on a day of our choosing
  • Doctors Fee


  • This is a ‘Direct to cremation’ only service – there is no use of the chapel for mourners.  
  • Full payment (cleared funds) must be received 3 days before the funeral takes place.
  • Larger Clients: In the case of bariatric (obese) clients , that cause additional or unusual requirements, or clients who exceed 6’2″ x 22″ in size, we reserve the right to either decline or withdraw our services at any time, and/or make additional charges where these become necessary, but you will be informed of any such charges before we apply them.
