Peterborough crematorium was opened in 1958 and is owned and administered by Peterborough City Council. 

Peterborough CrematoriumVisitors are always welcome at Peterborough Crematorium during opening times.              The Crematorium is located in approximately 26 acres of land, much of it left as original ancient woodland, the trees enhance the tranquil atmosphere of the grounds and because of its origins during the springtime we have carpets of bluebells and other wild flowers. There are also a variety of birds and animals that visit the area.

Peterborough Crematorium is a holder of the Prestigious ‘Green Flag’ award for more information please view our Green Flag page.
