Family Holding Hands Walking On Beach

At Distinct Cremations, we offer two types of non traditional funerals. A direct cremation which is unattended and an attended cremation. Read on for more information.

What is a non traditional funeral?

A non traditional funeral is a no fuss funeral which allows the family to say goodbye in a way they choose rather than being inhibited by historic practices. With a non traditional funeral, the family has the flexibility to tailor the funeral cremation to the personality of the deceased.

At Distinct Cremations, our non traditional funerals focus on making the funeral as simple and stress free as possible, and instead allow the family to focus on spending time with loved ones or organise a memorial service that suits the deceased.

We offer two non traditional funerals: a direct cremation which is unattended and an attended cremation.

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

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.
