All of our ashes are returned in a simple urn which can be upgraded to a wooden urn for an additional cost.
You need to be over the age of 18 to take out a funeral plan. For 5 & 10 year instalment plans you must be aged between 50 & 74 when you purchase your plan.
In the unlikely event that Distinct Cremations stops trading your money will still be safe.
For lump sum and instalments up to 12 months we hold your money securely in the Distinct Funeral Plans Trust, your investment is set aside completely separately from our day-to-day activities. In the Trust, your money can only ever be used towards the cost of your funeral and nothing else, making it 100% safe and protected against any eventuality.
For 5 & 10 year instalment plans we purchase a “whole of life” policy from one of the UK's largest mutual life organisations, Scottish Friendly, who are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulations Authority, to provide your chosen cremation at the time of need.
Yes - you can take out a plan on behalf of your parents or a partner.
There can occasionally be restrictions on scattering ashes in certain locations. If you’ve got a specific location in mind, it’s best to speak to someone associated with that destination before making your decision.
If you are paying for your plan in up to 12 instalments, your personal representatives will need to pay the outstanding amount due.
If you are paying over 5 or 10 years and death occurs after 12 months and your monthly instalments are up to date, no further payment will need to be made.
If you are paying over 5 or 10 years and death occurs within 12 months of the start date of your plan, your personal representatives will need to pay the difference between the amount already paid and the lump sum plan price at the time you took out your plan. If death occurs within 12 months of the start date of the plan as the result of accidental death, no further payment will need to be made.
