The Best Choice

for a simple and affordable
cremation or burial
in Nelson and Tasman
– with Care and Dignity

Why did I started Simple Direct Funerals?

I wanted to provide an alternative to traditional Funeral Homes. 

My focus was on providing a:

  • well run, low-cost funerals
  • excellent supportive service
  • less complicated process for families
  • respectful dignified farewell

This focus remains and the feedback has been very positive.  Importantly, this approach still provides family with a meaningful way to say goodbye.

You can expect professional, caring and honest service.
