Cremation

When cremation is your chosen choice.

You must contact a Funeral Director who we ensure all statutory (legal) requirements are met.

Before cremation can take place, forms must be signed by a medical referee who will ensure that the attending doctor viewed the deceased both before and after death has taken place, completed the medical certificate and the necessary form stating that there is no reason why the deceased should not be cremated.

The attending doctor is required to examine whether or not the death should be notified to the coroner.

All the crematoria have a chapel or chapels where the service can take place. This can be a short prayer service, following a service or mass in Church, or the main service or mass can take place in the crematorium chapel. Families may supply CD's with their own preference of music to be played in the crematorium chapel.
