We welcome floral tributes but as you will understand it is necessary for tributes brought to the crematorium for a funeral to be removed at some point during the following days. This is the schedule we work to:
|The day of the funeral||The removal day (early morning)|
|Tuesday & Wednesday||Monday|
|Thursday & Friday||Tuesday|
Please contact the crematorium office if you wish the flowers to remain longer and we will see what can be arranged. Once removed from the display area the tributes are dismantled and the flowers composted. Where possible any remaining material is recycled.
Visitors may lay cut flowers on the lawns throughout the Garden of Remembrance but please be aware that these are removed by the staff once they have withered. We ask that you please first remove any wrapping so that these flowers can also be composted.
Flowers placed in the remembrance book room are also removed when withered, and are added to the compost area.
The crematorium is operated in accordance with the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management Charter for the Bereaved (pdf)
