After the committal, the coffin is gently removed to the crematory area where the cremation takes place. The ashes are generally ready for collection 72 hours after the service. When you collect the ashes from the crematorium you will receive them in a secure receptacle, unless, you have made arrangements with your funeral director for a wooden casket etc.
Scattering of the ashes can take place any time after the cremation. If you chose for your loved one to be laid to rest in our Gardens of Remembrance following the cremation this will take place after 14 days. We also accept ashes from other crematoria so that you may re-unite your loved ones. To book a scattering, please contact us.
You may wish to take the ashes overseas, for example, to a place of birth or favourite holiday destination. To facilitate this you will need the relevant paperwork. Please contact us for more information.
You may have the ashes buried. We place the ashes into a bio-degradable container supplied by us. You may purchase a wooden casket or other container from your funeral director which we can then place in the grave.
If you wish to hold a memorial service in the chapel before laying the ashes to rest, please contact us to book a service and complete the necessary paperwork.
