What is a Direct Cremation?

Choosing a direct cremation instead of a traditional funeral lets you celebrate a loved one's life however you wish, rather than being bound by tradition or debt.

  • The cremation is usually unattended, without any mourners present.
  • Friends and family often instead have a celebration or wake at a time and place that suits them, when they are ready.
  • On average, it's over 72% cheaper ** than a traditional funeral.

At Distinct Cremations, we specialise in Direct Cremations, an affordable alternative to a traditional funeral, without any compromises.

** 73% saving is based on the cost of a basic funeral at £4,141 (SunLife Cost of Dying Report 2024, sunlife.co.uk/ funeral-costs) vs the cost of a Distinct Cremations direct cremation at £1,099

"Treated very kindly and sympathetically while sorting out a funeral.

It's not a nice thing to have to do, but lots of support was given. The whole thing was easy to sort and even good value for money"

Straight forward to plan. Very helpful on a telephone call.
