When Cremation is intended there are various Crematoria that you can use, whether you intend to have a full service at the Crematorium Chapel or Committal only following a Church Service.
All Chapels have facilities to play recorded music and the use of an Organ. They also have different types of memorials and Gardens of Remembrance where cremated remains can be placed.
