Difference between various types of cream

I am curious, as I have often heard about and seen in recipes various types of creams that are called for in different recipes, and I was wondering if someone could tell me the difference between some of them, like single or double cream, heavy cream, whipping cream, et cetera...

Also, I sometimes try to find substitutions for part of each of these, since I still can't take an overload of dairy in my diet (although I am improving! - I so look forward to a cheesy pizza again!), but I want to try to have some. However, I can never seem to find an adequate substitute, so I would like to know if anyone knows of one for them.

Thanks in advance!
