Open day on Saturday 18 May
We’ll be hosting an open day at the crematorium on Saturday 18 May, from midday to 5pm, in conjunction with Dying Matters Awareness Week.
The day promises to be interesting and thought provoking – there will be lots of activities, games and competitions aimed at all ages.

There will also be behind-the-scenes tours at midday, 2pm and 4pm.
