Pros and cons of a direct cremation explained

Simplicity Cremations funeral plans – Our Verdict
Simplicity funerals offer flexibility, giving families the option to choose between an attended or unattended simple cremation.
The cost of a Simplicity Cremations funeral plan is competitive and the services included are completely guaranteed. However, none of the plans include the doctor’s fees, which currently cost around £164. If required, these will need to be paid for by the family at the time of need.
It’s also worth highlighting that with the Magnolia or Orchid plan, the cremation will be held at the closest Dignity crematorium to your resting place, which of course can only be decided upon by Simplicity when the time comes and may not be local to your family.
