Poppy’s

Independent Funeral Director

Lambeth Cemetery, Blackshaw Road, London SW17 0BY

Description

At Poppy’s Funerals we are passionate about helping you get what you want and need from a funeral. We take pride in providing the personal, down-to-earth, highly professional service you need when faced with the death of someone you love. Above all, we care hugely about getting it right for you. Our mission is to empower and support people to have the funeral that is right for them.

We believe a meaningful, authentic, personal funeral has the power to change lives for the better and we consider it our duty to try and achieve this for everybody that comes to us. We believe families and friends know best, so we support and encourage rather than prescribe. We believe in access to transparent, honest information and freedom of choice. We aim to change the world we operate in for the better, one funeral at a time.

We’re very proud of the work we do. This is what you can expect from us:

A personal approach
We take a personal approach with every family we meet – you will have one point of contact from beginning to end. We will listen to you, give you honest, straightforward advice and do everything in our power to make your ideas happen.

Respect for the body
We believe the dead have the right to gentle, careful treatment. We care for the person who has died as if their family or friends were standing beside us. The people in our care are never the anonymous ‘deceased’. They had a name in life, they have a name in death, and this is how we refer to them. We leave the body in its natural state. We do not undertake any invasive procedures such as embalming.

Value
We provide only what you want and need. We do not sell unnecessary, expensive packages. We believe that everyone has the right to an affordable funeral.

      What is a Direct Cremation?

      A Direct Cremation is an alternative to the traditional funeral. This involves the cremation of the deceased without a funeral service. A Direct Cremation is generally the most economic option because costs of the coffin, preparation of the body, funeral service and expensive transportation are not included. However, many people choose Direct Cremations for reasons other than expense, for example:

      • - Wanting to have a memorial at a different time to the cremation
      • - Expressed desire from the deceased to not have a ceremony
      • - Individuals with relatives who face big physical or geographical challenges in coming together for a ceremony

      The prices quoted for Direct Cremations include:

      • All charges, meetings and paperwork for the cremation
      • Collection of deceased and care prior to cremation
      • A simple coffin and urn for the ashes
      • Cremation fees and delivery of ashes to the family

      Attended funeral

      This is Funeral Choice’s best estimate of this Funeral Director’s fees for an Attended Funeral, which is where family and friends have a ceremony or service for the deceased person at the same time as they attend their burial or cremation.

      This price includes the following:

      • Taking care of all necessary legal and administrative arrangements
      • Collecting and transporting the deceased person from the place of death (normally within 15 miles of the funeral director’s premises) into the funeral director’s care
      • Care of the deceased person before the funeral in appropriate facilities.
      • Providing a suitable coffin
      • Optional viewing of the deceased person for family and friends, by appointment with the funeral director
      • At a date and time you agree with the funeral director, taking the deceased person direct to the agreed cemetery or crematorium (normally within 20 miles of the funeral director’s premises) in a hearse or other appropriate vehicle

      In addition to the Funeral Director’s fee, there will be third party costs to consider (sometimes called disbursements) to cover the other aspects of a funeral (such as the crematorium or burial fees). Your chosen Funeral Director will be able to provide these for you.

      Unattended funeral

      This is Funeral Choice’s best estimate of this Funeral Director’s fees and the crematorium fee for an Unattended Funeral, which is where family and friends may choose to have a ceremony, event or service for the deceased person, but they do not attend the burial or cremation itself. This is also known as a Direct Cremation.

      This price includes the following:

      • Funeral Director's fees
      • Crematorium fee (for an unattended funeral) as selected by the Funeral Director

      In addition to this fee, there might be additional third party costs to consider (sometimes called disbursements). Your chosen Funeral Director will be able to explain these for you.

      If you wish to attend the funeral, you should view the “Attended Funeral” price instead.
