Some families have an instinct to hold a funeral without employing a funeral director. This can be a truly empowering experience for family and friends. If you would like to run the funeral yourselves and take responsibility for all paperwork and logistics, but you feel you’d like some help with the handling and transport of the body, we can help.
Poppy’s ‘A to B’ includes two members of our team to collect the person who has died on the day of the funeral, lift them into the coffin, and bring them to the funeral in one of our simple hearse-style vehicles. At this point, we will leave you to carry the coffin and to run the funeral yourselves.
London is the most expensive place to die in the UK. SunLife’s Cost of Dying Report shows the average cost of dying in the UK in 2014 was £8,427 (including administration of the estate), with many of the contributing costs coming from unnecessary funeral accessories.
Choosing Poppy’s ‘A to B’ means you can create a truly meaningful ceremony without spending money on funeral accessories you don’t want or need.
