Simple, respectful celebrations for all

Say goodbye with a funeral service that honours and reflects the beliefs, customs and traditions of your family.

Cultural funeral services

We embrace people from all walks of life. No matter your beliefs or background, we’ll work together to plan a meaningful funeral service that reflects your wishes. Our caring team is experienced in planning funeral services in line with a diverse range of religions and cultures.

Services for other faiths and backgrounds

If you or your loved one is from a faith or cultural background other than the ones listed above, we can still help you plan a respectful service. Our caring team will take the time to understand your customs and preferences to help plan a thoughtful end-of-life service so you and your loved ones can say goodbye your way.

Charlene at Simplicity put me at ease and took all the organisation on board and was willing to work with my husband and I, as well as a change of venues from church to crematorium to a service held at crematorium itself with priest attending.

Any questions about planning a cultural funeral service?

Here are some answers to common questions that might help.

Can I hold the funeral at my local place of worship?

Of course. No matter your religion or cultural background, we’ll work with your local place of worship and its representatives. We will liaise with them to plan the service and ensure the end-of-life celebration honours your faith and culture.


Does a funeral have to happen in a church?

No, a funeral service can be held almost anywhere. Many people choose a location based on their faith or cultural background. We also have beautiful, modern chapels and venues in locations around the country that can provide a comfortable, respectful place to say goodbye.


Am I able to customise the funeral service?

Yes, we will help you create a meaningful service that reflects your loved one’s wishes. Our pricing packages are designed to simplify the planning process, but your caring funeral director will talk you through any custom requirements or additional inclusions you might like to add.
