Our Simplicita Direct Cremation review verdict
The relationship Simplicita has with Lytham Saint Annes crematorium means for the moment they can control costs and offer a comparable direct cremation service. However at £450, the allowance in this prepaid plan is the lowest of all the direct cremation plans we have reviewed, so there could be more to pay in the future if the council run crematorium changes its pricing structure.
The add ons to the services on offer by Simplicita could make the plan quite pricey too; for example if you need to pay for doctors fees, collection from home and ashes delivered in a wooden casket, instead of £1,645 you would actually pay £2,159.
The direct funeral service offered by Simplicita certainly appears to be a personal one as the owner seems very hands on but the size of the operation is unknown as there is no information readily available on staff or any fleet of cars etc used for collection through England and Wales.
