Comparing our funeral services

Arranging a funeral doesn't have to be an overwhelming experience. At Distinct Cremations, we focus on making things as stress-free as possible whether you're looking to arrange a funeral today or you're planning for the future.

Our services

At Distinct Cremations, we offer two different types of services:

  • Arrange a funeral today: This is purchased when someone dies or can be purchased when a person is receiving end of life care. The price to arrange a funeral today starts at £1,099. This service is slightly cheaper than a funeral plan to keep the price as low as possible, but isn't inclusive of some additional charges which may apply.
  • A funeral plan: This is purchased before someone dies and can also be purchased when a person is receiving end of life care. This can be purchased for yourself or on behalf of someone else. The price of a funeral plan starts at £1,699. The reason why this is more expensive is because the funeral plan is inclusive of all additional charges so your family don't have any bills to pay when the time comes.

Below we look at both services, inclusions and additional charges in more detail.

Arrange a funeral when the time comes or plan ahead?

With Distinct Cremations, you're able to pay for a funeral when the time comes, or you can plan ahead for yourself or a loved one by getting a funeral plan. Below is some detail on what to expect from the two different options.

Below are a selection of reviews from those who have arranged a funeral or purchased a funeral plan through Distinct Cremations.

"Smooth and straightforward purchase with plenty of contact and feedback."

“Easy to use and very helpful. Very easy to use their services and always called with updates. Sorry to say I've had to use their services twice now and I've already booked my own service. On both times I've used this service I've been kept informed by calls to everything going on. All my requests were made to feel like no trouble whatsoever, happy to help attitude made what was a very emotional time pass with no problems. Ty to all the teams involved"

"Quick and easy to arrange. Very good value. The information pack arrived days after I made my enquiry. It was so easy to arrange the plan that I wanted. The follow up call was very reassuring. I am very happy with the service provided."

"Already recommended to other family members. Easy to access and apply for a plan at a good price, and even better, in 20 years time there will be no additional cost. It's not a subject that anyone wants to think about but now I have it sorted it has given me peace of mind knowing my family won't have the worry or cost when that time comes, now I can forget it and enjoy many more years, highly recommended. Hassle free application that was completed in minutes but I'm not planning on using this plan anytime soon!!"

"I was very pleased with the prompt efficient service that I got, everything was explained to me, and the paperwork was easy to understand, and there was no pressure put on me for a decision. I would most certainly recommended this company for price and efficiency."

“Happy with everything. We were well pleased with the consultant Sarah Mills she was very helpful and made us feel very confident that we were doing the right thing about our funeral plan."

"Positive without being pushy. Easy to understand the scheme, helpful brochure and a realistic price. The staff I contacted were polite and professional. Great value. An ideal alternative for those of us who don't want a lot of fuss."
