Cremation

Crematoriums exist throughout Cornwall, the closest to us being in Camborne.

The main crematoriums are as follows;

Treswithian Downs Crematorium

Glynn Valley Crematorium
Bodmin

If the decision is made for a cremation funeral then we can offer advice on the most suitable service. There is the option of conducting religious or non religious ceremonies, tailor made to your requirements with your choice of order of service or other personal effects. There are a number of choices in relation to the funeral service. You may wish the service is conducted in your local church, or our chapel, followed by a family interment at the crematorium or you may wish to conduct the whole service at the church, our chapel or even at the crematorium, the choice is yours.

All of the crematoriums are set in lovely tranquil locations and there are a variety of services with special areas in which flowers can be viewed.

Should you wish, we are also able to provide our own celebrant who will meet with you and discuss the funeral service of your wishes. The service is something that is very personal to you, so feel free to tailor it to your individual requirements and what you feel is appropriate.

The remains after a cremation is often the most considered part of the ceremony and we are able to help facilitate you in the scattering of ashes. We can assist you with this and the options are many and varied, again very personal to you. Often families like the idea of being able to go somewhere to remember their loved one. This may be a particular favourite spot that they used to go to, a viewing area or somewhere more personal.

There are also now a limited number of cremated remains plots available at Barnoon Cemetery, or Longstone Cemetery, Carbis Bay and numerous choices in Hayle. We are able to facilitate this and can provide numerous scatter pods, urns or other products. We can also provide an ashes service whereby you can scatter the persons ashes at sea, should you wish. We also are able to store your loved ones ashes should this be required.

Direct Cremation

Whilst this does not appeal to everyone, there are occasions in which families or loved ones had expressed wishes not to have a funeral service. This is known as a “direct cremation” which involves the funeral director looking after your loved one until they are taken to the local crematorium, without any attendees or any form of service taking place.
