Can you have a small funeral?
Over the years, and especially in the past two years, there has been a trend towards people increasingly choosing small funerals. Simple and dignified these are lower priced choices compared to a traditional service.
Instead of masses of people coming to a venue somewhere, with all the expectations of a traditional funeral, a small funeral offers the choice of just having immediate family and friends in a room to say goodbye.
A small funeral is characterized by the following choices:
A private cremation only - just family and friends to view and say goodbye,
A simple committal service - as above but a few words are said as a sign of respect,
A small chapel/venue service - low fuss, similar to a full traditional funeral but without the expensive elements.
Small funerals are also popular when there are few family and friends. Maybe the person has outlived everyone. It happens a lot.
Whatever the wishes, whatever the budget, there is a small funeral that will be appropriate to say farewell.
