Distinct Cremations

Step 1

Readying the ashes

Once the cremation has taken place, our team will ready the ashes in an ashes container for delivery. If you wish, you can choose something a little more decorative upon request.

Step 2

Arranging the delivery

Within 14 days of the cremation, our team will call to arrange a time and date that suits you to hand deliver the ashes to the location of your choice. Don't worry, we'll work around you.

Step 3

Hand delivery of the ashes

After liaising with you, our team will hand deliver the ashes at the date and time you requested, in the ashes container you requested. From here, you can choose what you would like to do with the ashes.

Step 4

Commemorating your loved one

Each family commemorates their loved one differently. Sometimes ashes are scattered somewhere meaningful, others turn the ashes into a keepsake, while some families keep the ashes in the ashes container and make it the centrepiece of a memorial service. You can read about memorial service ideas.

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."
