Cremated Remains

It will be necessary to establish the requirements for disposal of the ashes after the funeral. 

The Crematorium or your local cemetery may provide a garden of remembrance where the ashes can be scattered, or they can be returned to the Funeral Director for collection by the family to be scattered at a favourite location.

Some local Cemeteries or Churchyards may have an area designated to inter the ashes in the ground, which can subsequently be marked by a memorial headstone or tablet. 

We have our own Memorial Masonry Department and if necessary we will be pleased to discuss your requirements subject to any cemetery or churchyard regulations.

Please contact the office if you would like to receive our memorial brochure.

Urns and Containers for Cremated Remains

Subject to your requirements there are a variety of options available. 

The crematorium will usually supply a simple container in which the ashes may remain until such time that they are scattered at the Crematorium or by the family elsewhere.

Alternatively we can supply a more attractive urn or a biodegradable scatter tube.

If the ashes are going to be interred in a local cemetery or churchyard, we would normally recommend that the ashes are contained in a wooden casket.
