What is an Intimate Funeral?
An Intimate Funeral is a small, simple cremation where a group of family and friends can be present in the chapel to pay their respects. This type of simple cremation costs significantly less than a traditional funeral. You will be welcomed inside the chapel by our funeral director and chapel attendant with music of your choice playing if you wish. You will then have around 15 minutes for reflection and the chance to say a final goodbye in a small, simple, personal way.
