A funeral plan provides peace of mind knowing that your funeral arrangements are in place for when the time comes, allowing you to focus on living life to the fullest. It brings comfort knowing that your final wishes will be honoured and carried out as you desire.

Another benefit of getting a funeral plan is to protect yourself from rising funeral prices. Since 2004, in the midlands including the Burton upon Trent area, funeral costs have risen by 89%.<sup+

As part of the Westerleigh group, we have 40 crematoriums across the UK where our prepayment funeral plans are fulfilled. So even if the person covered by the funeral plan moves out of the Burton area in the future, their funeral will still go ahead exactly as planned, as long as they are still based somewhere in mainland UK.

<sup+ Increase is based on the average cost of a funeral in the East & West Midlands in 2004 (£2,061, SunLife Cost of Dying Report 2015) and in 2022 (£3,892, SunLife Cost of Dying Report 2023, sunlife.co.uk/funeral-plans)

Distinct Cremations

At Distinct Cremations, you can look at our funeral as a funeral of two parts. First, there is the cremation itself, where we take care of collecting the deceased, carrying out the cremation, personally returning the ashes and making things as fuss and stress-free for the family as possible. Secondly, there is the memorial service or celebration which the family organise where loved ones gather at a separate time to commemorate the deceased.

With our direct cremation funeral plans, we take the stress away from the process allowing the family to say goodbye when they want, where they want and how they want. Here are some places in Burton upon Trent where you could consider having your memorial service.

In nature

For those who prefer an outdoor setting, Stapenhill Gardens could be a beautiful option. The gardens offer a peaceful and picturesque environment, with areas suitable for gathering and reflection.

Surrounded by history

There are many great historical places around Burton including Tutbury Castle which dates back to the 11th century and can provide a unique and atmospheric backdrop for a memorial service.

Local venue

Somewhere like the Marston's Social Club provides function rooms that can be suitable for memorial services and is perfect for those local to Burton. Branston Golf and Country Club or even St George's Park may work too for big sports fans.

We offer the highest level of support, but don't take our word for it

“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."

"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."
