If you are struggling to afford the costs of a funeral, you could be eligible for a Funeral Expenses Payment from the government to help you pay.
If you are not eligible for this financial help but would like low cost funeral services in [location], our simple cremation funerals prioritise affordability without compromising on care. Our direct cremation funerals without attendees are available from just £995. Alternatively, if you and your family would like the tradition of saying a final goodbye, our attended cremation services costs from £1,545.
Carbon offsetting is a way to compensate for producing carbon dioxide emissions by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere. Carbon offsetting projects help to combat global climate change as well as caring for local communities.
All the carbon offsetting projects available on the Greenr platform that Distinct Cremations is using for you have the highest credibility and are verified.
Ashes can be scattered free of charge in our Gardens of Remembrance. If you have chosen to have the ashes returned to you, one of our Funeral Operatives will personally return the ashes to your family after the cremation has happened.
For funeral plans, you can pay half of the cost upfront as a deposit and the remaining amount over six monthly instalments.
