Edward John Funerals  ▹  Simple Funeral Package

Simple Funeral Package from £1,995

For a Service held at a local Cemetery or Crematorium with a Hearse travelling directly to the service.

Many families are now spread out due to work and family commitments, and with access to their own forms of transport, it may be more appropriate for all mourners to meet at the Crematorium or Cemetery with the Hearse travelling directly to the service from the Funeral Home, rather than congregating at the family home and travelling by Limousine.

Edward John Funerals offer a Simple Funeral Package to suit the needs of families who wish to hold a Funeral Service at their local Crematorium or Cemetery but do not require transport for mourners, or a Funeral Procession leaving from the family home.
What's included in the Simple Funeral Package for £1,995 plus Disbursements
✓  Funeral Directors Professional Fees
✓  Collection and Care of your loved one
✓  Preparation and Dressing of your loved one
✓  Provision of The Tutbury Coffin suitable for Burial or Cremation
✓ Visiting your loved one in the Private Chapel of Rest
✓ Hearse to convey the Coffin directly to the Service
✓ Funeral Director to guide you on the day
✓ A Team of Pallbearers to carry the Coffin
