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 £1,199. 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.

Arranging a funeral when needed

This is the option to take when there no funeral plan is in place.

The funeral can either be arranged at the time of death or when a loved one is receiving end of life care.

The family will need to make a call to arrange a funeral, some details will be collected, and from here our team will begin organising the service from collection to the personal delivery of the ashes.

  • Prices start from £1,199
  • Additional fees including doctor's fee, collection outside of office hours and non-hospital collection may apply

  • Funeral organisation will need to be made at a difficult time

Service very efficient, and comprehensive. Understandably, you "chased me up" when there was a delay in my response to place an order, but this delay was whilst I contacted all those relatives who might have had a view to express.

I was very happy with the service I received and they are only a phone call away if I or my sons should need advice or help in any way
Wendy 8 Apr 2024
This is a good company, the cremation was dealt with very smoothly without any problems. The staff were very courteous and professional throughout. Everything was explained over the phone and they were very patient answering my questions. The ashes were delivered on time to my door. Highly recommended.

Very kind and helpful lady. She talked me through everything that I asked her about.
Anon 1 Apr 2024
From the very first phone call I felt things were going to be handled well. Kindness compassion and helpful ness were shown throughout. I was kept informed about all the details and the person delivering the ashes was so respectful and kind taking the time to ask about my husbands life. This is who will handle my cremation.
