With Distinct Cremations, all our services are carried out with dignity and respect, whether your loved one is having an attended or unattended funeral. Below is a step-by-step process of exactly what happens with a video showing what a cremation with Distinct Cremations looks like.

Transporting the deceased to the crematorium

On the day of the cremation, our experienced funeral team will transport your loved one from our mortuary facilities in Cannock to the crematorium in a private ambulance.

Your loved one is escorted through the front door

Once at the crematorium, the coffin will be carried through the main entrance of the crematorium and laid to rest on the catafalque beside a photo of your loved one, if you wish. Our team will respectfully bow, step back and allow the service to take place.

The Service - Unattended Cremation

With our unattended cremation, you can have a piece of music played for the deceased before the cremation takes place or you can allow a moment of silence to be observed. You can also have the service recorded if you wish.

The Service - Attended Cremation

Our attended cremation differs slightly, but it all depends on how you want to personalise the service. Once the service begins, you may want to play a piece of music or deliver a eulogy. We also can play a slide show of images on a large screen. You have the freedom to arrange the service however you'd like.

The curtain is pulled across and cremation takes place

After the short service, the curtain is drawn in front of the coffin and the cremation will take place. Within 14 days of the cremation, the ashes will be hand-delivered to your family.

One of the UK’s best value direct cremation services, delivered with a caring and compassionate heart

Not only are our funerals carried out with love and care, but we also offer one of the UK’s best value services.

From your very first phone call, right through to the hand delivery of the ashes, you can rest assured that you will be in the most caring and attentive hands with Distinct Cremations.

Each and every unattended and attended service that my team carry out is treated with the same level of dignity and respect.

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.
