"I talked to the people at Distinct Cremations. They told me these days many of us don’t want to spend large sums of money on an elaborate funeral."

Below are a selection of reviews from those who have purchased a funeral plan with Distinct Cremations.
"Easy to purchase and it was peace of mind if anything happens to my wife, in the future, knowing it's all sorted and paid for. Although I have spoken to the reps over the phone they have been friendly and helpful. I have purchased the 1 year plan and it's knowing by November 2024 it will be bought and paid for and definitely a weight off my mind. Touch wood, nothing will happen for a while, but when it does, it will be all sorted."
"I spent a lot of time reading, researching, and looking at several funeral plan provider websites, but this one stood out for the following reasons:
(1) A well laid out website and very informative and comprehensive literature sent in the post.
(2) Good emphasis on how the funeral scheme is protected by the FCA and easy to trace the FCA registration through to the FCA website to see that it is genuine and without any red flags. Also easy to look up the funeral company and its parent companies at Companies House to see that they are all financially healthy and solvent. I really liked the fact that there is also a link to the funeral scheme's trust accounts on the website - very transparent, which is good [and not many competitors do this].
(3) The application process was very easy to follow and complete. Extremely prompt processing of the application [all set up in 24 hours, even though I chose to post mine] and very courteous and polite staff at customer services when I spoke to them.
All in all, just good customer service."
"Easy to organise based on information received which answered all our questions. Delighted with follow up phone call which was very much appreciated providing the human face to internet service."
"Exceptional service, everything was taken care of by kind and considerate staff making a very difficult time easier to bear by removing the stress of organising and planning a funeral. We can now plan how to celebrate my fathers life together as a family and at a time of our choosing."
"They are the most economical when you take out a monthly plan. Very easy to understand and very nice people. Easy to set up direct debit and economical. All very professional"
"The whole process was a lot easier than I expected. Every question that I had was answered thoroughly, and there was no compulsion to proceed until I was totally satisfied. I have since referred other family and friends to Distint Cremations. The Unattended Cremation Plan fitted my brief of a simple, cost effective funeral. I have no family nearby, so this plan made perfect sense for me."
