Crematorium opens its doors

Residents have the opportunity to go behind the scenes at their local crematorium.

The open day takes place at Chesterfield and District Crematorium on Sunday 29 June from 11am to 2pm.

Visitors can have a look behind the scenes at the workings of the crematorium which is managed by a joint committee on behalf of Bolsover District Council, Chesterfield Borough Council and North East Derbyshire District Council.

Staff at the crematorium will be on hand to answer questions visitors may have about cremations, burials or funeral services.

Councillor Dennis Kelly, chairman of Chesterfield and District Crematorium Joint Committee said: “Each year, we have people ask us questions about how the crematorium works – this is an opportunity for them to go behind the scenes and see the areas the public don’t usually see.

“It’s also an opportunity for someone who has lost a loved one to come along and remember them at the service of remembrance.”

The service of remembrance takes place at 3pm.

This service is open to all, allowing them to remember a loved one or friend.

Visitors will also be able to see and spend time in the crematorium’s memorial gardens, including the Peter Pan memorial garden created with Chesterfield Sands, the stillbirth and neo-natal death charity, for families to remember a child who has died before, during or after birth.

For more details about the event, call the crematorium on 01246 345888 or e-mail bereavement.services@chesterfield.gov.uk.
