"We would like to thank you most sincerely for all the care and support in organising a beautiful funeral for our mother. What would normally be a stressful time, was enjoyable and relaxing. Nothing was too much trouble as the team went over and above to ensure all our special requests with music and tributes were perfect. "
"Thanks so much for the wonderful ceremony that you organised for my dad. The venue was beautiful, we loved the view, birds and squirrel outside, the daffodil picture with dad’s name on the screen, the photo slide show, and the possibility to have the event live-streamed. It was watched by friends and family in UK, We felt it was a marvellous send off for dad."
"Your team did more than anybody could expect under the circumstances and we remain especially grateful for their kindness and consideration. I would like to add that the centre and its surrounding area clearly reflect the high standards you uphold."

A direct cremation is a simple fuss-free cremation without the costs, and stress, associated with arranging a traditional funeral. For many, a direct cremation allows them to separate the cremation from the celebration of the deceased’s life, allowing them a dignified opportunity to say goodbye in a way that better suits them.
To make things even easier, all of the arrangements are made directly with us.
The Westerleigh Group have owned and managed a network of private crematoria within the UK for over 30 years. Distinct Cremations are part of the Westerleigh Group.
