Attend Chesterfield Crematorium’s open day and service of remembrance

Residents and visitors are invited to visit Chesterfield Crematorium’s open day and service of remembrance on Sunday 11 June.

The crematorium will be opening its doors to everyone to learn more about the memorial schemes available to commemorate loves ones, find out more about the cremation process and allow guests to ask any questions they may have about tracing the final resting place of a loved one or ancestor.

Councillor Martin Stone, Cabinet Member for Climate Change, Planning, and Environmentsaid: “This is the first time an open day like this has been held at the crematorium since 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Attending is a great way to dispel any worries or myths about the cremation process, as well as having the chance to look behind the scenes of the site.”

The open day will take place from 10am to 12pm on 11 June 2023, with behind-the-scenes tours taking place at 10am, 10:30am, 11:00am and 11:30am. Booking is essential, as group sizes are limited.

During the open day staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have about cremations, burials or funeral services.

The service of remembrance will take place at 1pm and will consist of live music performances, poetry readings and the opportunity to take part in an act of remembrance.

Booking is also needed for the service of remembrance, due to limited seat numbers.

If you would like more information or you would like to book for either, or both, the open day and the service of remembrance, please contact the Crematorium Office on 01246 345888 or email:

Both events will be held at Chesterfield Crematorium, Chesterfield Road, Brimington, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, S43 1AU.
