How you can help us
- Treat the facility with respect.
- Do not park so as to block other vehicles in. or in the drives where you may prevent access for fire or ambulance services in an emergency. A blocked vehicle may belong to someone attending the previous service and you may prevent them leaving for up to three-quarters of an hour, causing them great distress.
- Smoking is permitted in the crematorium grounds, but please use the ashtray provided for cigarette butts if you need to smoke before entering the Chapel.
- A service may follow immediately after your own so, after attending a service, leave the area set aside for floral tributes as soon as practicable. When a service is in progress please remember that loud conversations can be disconcerting for other mourners.
- If you have any concerns or complaints, please contact the Superintendent & Registrar who will readily listen and do his upmost to resolve any problems.
