What's a Simple Funeral?

The Simple Funeral is a basic funeral arrangement as defined by the Scottish government. At present they're the only UK government body to publish a recommendation (as of June 2019), but the rest of the UK is expected to follow in the near future. We've based the price you see on localfuneral.co.uk on this package to allow you to compare pricing across funeral directors on a common arrangement, like-for-like.

What's included in a Simple Funeral?

  • Uplift and care of the deceased prior to the funeral

  • The funeral director's services
