How the funeral is organised and how it looks and feels is entirely up to you as there are no rights or wrongs - we'll let you know all your options during our initial chat.
The ceremony or celebration can be held in a special or beautiful place like home or in your garden, in a field or in woods, in church or the local village hall, in a barn, by a lake or by the sea... whatever sort of funeral you are considering - large, small, simple, flamboyant, traditional or alternative, we are here to help deliver your wishes in a positive, straightforward and cost-effective way.
There are two main aspects to organising a funeral:
1) the logistics of caring for your loved one's body, and
2) organising the ceremony or celebration. We can help you with either or both of these aspects. Every funeral we do is unique - we don't do 'packages'!
We are an independent local funeral service - not part of a conglomerate, group or chain. We are green-minded and eco-friendly. We do natural burials and offer environmentally-friendly coffins, helping bring natural funerals into the mainstream.
"Hi Toby, thank you so much for organising both the cremation and the memorial tribute for my dad George recently. I have had so many lovely comments from friends and family saying how beautiful everything was at both occasions - credit must lay at your feet for this! I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism, hard work and complete sensitivity during this difficult time for me." Dr Rob Mordecai.
"My mother lost her husband and I tried to make things easier for her by organising the funeral. I contacted around 8 different funeral companies and once I had spoken to Toby I realised that Simple Kent Funerals was the perfect one for us. We wanted a different, tasteful and personal send off. Toby delivered exactly what we asked for and more, our guests all talked about how fantastic it was. I would highly recommend Toby and Simple Kent Funerals to everyone to help choose the perfect send off for their loved one." Lisa Griffin.
