That's Me! - Our new TV advert from Distinct Cremations

- 29/08/21

At around 60% less than the cost of a traditional funeral, direct cremations are the fastest-growing option for a funeral in the UK[1]. Any why not? Times are changing and so are our attitudes towards how we think our funerals should be.

If you’re here then you likely saw our TV ad and also said ‘that’s me!’ to the Distinct Cremations way of doing things.

Since 2007, over 70% of all funerals in the UK have been cremations. And where 77% of all funerals in 2019 were cremations, 14% of those were direct cremations, rising to 25% in 2020[1].

Each year, more and more of us are opting for send-offs that focus on fondly remembering the lives of the deceased, rather than leaving loved ones to grieve in sorrow.

Who are we?

Distinct Cremations is part of the Westerleigh Group, one of the UK’s leading operators of crematoria. With over 30 years’ experience supporting families in their time of need.

With a national network of crematoria we’re able to offer high-quality cremation services at a low price in beautiful surroundings, taking several of the biggest worries when it comes to funeral planning out of the equation.
