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.

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.

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.
