Finding a crematorium


The majority of the 250+ crematoria in the UK are non-denominational and run by local authorities, although an increasing number of the more recently established crematoria are privately operated.


Cremation is now the most popular form of funeral and can allow a loved one to keep their deceased family member’s or friend’s remains close to them. The practicalities of cremation funerals are not so different from those of a burial, only that you must consider where the service is to be held, and whether this offers an in-house cremation facility, or whether the service and cremation should be held in separate locations.
