Coronavirus (COVID-19) update:

Attending funerals: A risk-based health and safety assessment, taking into account the size of our chapel, has established that we can now accommodate up to 20 members of the deceased family and friends. This will also apply to burials.

However, guidance states that activities such as singing, chanting requiring raised voices or playing of instruments that are blown should be specifically avoided. These activities pose a possible additional risk of infection even if social distancing is being observed of if face coverings are worn.

This will take effect for any services that take place on or after the 4 July 2020.

In addition to this, and following the continuous monitoring of services booked, we are now able to take 1 hour booking slots for cremation for any services that take place on or after the 4 July 2020. This however could change if the service demand should increase drastically, at which time we may need to revert back to 30 minutes only.

If you require any further information please contact the Bereavement Services office.

Crematorium Grounds/Cemeteries: These are still open, however please be mindful of keeping at least six feet (two metres) away from other visitors.

Bereavement Services Office: This is closed, although we will take appointments from families to collect cremated remains, however please avoid this if you possibly can.

Waiting Room: This will be closed from today (Wednesday, 25 March). Attendees are asked to stay in their cars until the cortege arrives at the crematorium

Scattering/internment of cremated remains: If you have a scattering/internment booked, a member of the Bereavement Team will contact you.

Introduction

Peterborough Crematorium has a wide choice of memorials available to allow families to commemorate their loved one.m

Most of our memorials can be leased for a period of time (5, 10 or 20 years) with the option of renewing the lease for further period, from 1 to 20 years.

It may not be possible to have a memorial placed where the cremated remains are scattered, but a choice of various memorials may be purchased, in designated locations, some of which are in the same area where the scattering has taken place. 

Alternatively, a memorial may be leased where it is possible to have from one to four sets of cremated remains placed inside for the duration of the lease. You can choose from Sanctum 2000, Family Niche or Niche memorials.

To find out more information regarding our memorials or to download an application form, please see the following section.
