Some prefer the idea of holding a low key funeral that is either unattended or with just a few close loved ones, followed by a wider celebration of their life away from the crematorium at another time.
With no funeral director present, and some of the more expensive costs such as limousines, hearses or pallbearers removed, an Age Co Low Cost Cremation Plan can provide funeral services for much less than a traditional funeral, while still focusing on the essential care and practical elements of the cremation.
Once you have made your choice, you can buy over the phone by calling a member of the friendly and experienced team on 0800 033 4028*.
