Pre 10am: £1,550 + 3rd party costs
Our No Fuss Family Led funeral is a simple cremation funeral we have designed for families who do not want all the costly traditions that can typically go with a funeral – and where Direct Cremation ( a funeral without a service) is not an acceptable choice for them.
Typically attended by up to 12 people, the service is family led (no Minister or Celebrant), transport is our Galaxy hearsette and we use a simple handleless cardboard coffin. The coffin is pre-placed in the chapel before family enter. This option is designed for its simplicity.
Pre 10am: £1,550 + 3rd party costs
This service is offered at Mortlake Crematorium, Putney Vale or Kingston Crematorium only as they offer an early morning rate. The chapel time is 20 minutes.
3rd party costs are the crematorium fee pre 10am (£320 – £445) and the standard fee for doctors certificate of cremation £82.
So typically, a no-fuss attended funeral will cost around £1,997
For flowers we recommend a florist who creates beautiful hand tied coffin bouquets for a simple funeral, that you can then take home after. (£85)
After 10am: £1,750 + 3rd party costs
We can offer this family led service after 10am (at the same crematoriums) but please note the fees will be different (£1,750 plus crematorium fee £620 – £670) so total fee is around £2,500
Note: Our fee includes our Galaxy hearsette transport and a simple cardboard coffin which is pre-placed in the chapel before you enter. An alternative choice of coffin can be chosen at an additional cost (there is no transferable value of the cardboard coffin) – see coffin choices.

What happens at a No Fuss Simple Cremation Funeral?
A No Fuss funeral service is family led – no minister or celebrant – and is just quiet time in the crematorium chapel, where a choice of music can be played.
Some families sit quietly using the time to reflect, others share memories or personal tributes. Some read out a final letter they wish they could have written.
We can help advise and open and close the service for you if needed – we see many beautiful family led services
This is private family time, that can offer a sense of comfort in a no-fuss but dignified way.
Why is pre 10am cheaper?
Our pre 10am service is offered at Mortlake, Putney Vale or Kingston Crematorium only for logistical reasons and that they offer a discounted rate pre-10am. The service time is shorter – 20 minutes.
This service suits families that want to be at the chapel to say farewell in their own way but don’t wish for any formality. It also minimises costs.
No Fuss Family-Led Cremation Summary
At White Rose Modern Funerals we help you to reflect a family member’s life as you know it.
You may already have ideas that you want help with. Or, don’t know where to start.
Our approach is to talk through what mattered to who has died and to you as a family. We then help you to create the most fitting way to say farewell.
Our transparent approach to pricing will help to minimise costs.
Our knowledge and organisation skills will help you through what we know is an overwhelming and difficult time.
Our family could not have asked for a better interpretation of our description of a service which my husband had wanted. We are left with memories of a calm and peaceful day. Sheila S
