Attend the crematorium open day

Councillor Jill Mannion-Brunt at Chesterfield and District Crematorium

Chesterfield residents are invited to attend an open day at Chesterfield and District Crematorium on Sunday 21 July.

The crematorium is managed by a joint committee on behalf of Bolsover District Council, Chesterfield Borough Council and North East Derbyshire District Council.

Taking place from 10am to noon, the event is open to anyone who would like to chance look behind the scenes at the workings of the crematorium and ask any questions they may have relating to cremations, burials or funeral services.

There will also be the opportunity to learn more about memorial schemes, options available for the disposal of cremated remains and different options available to commemorate a loved one.

Councillor Jill Mannion-Brunt, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “This is an annual event and is organised to raise awareness about the variety of services provided relating to cremations, burials or funeral services.

“Anyone who comes along will have the chance to speak to our trained team of staff who can answer any queries and dispel any worries individuals may have about organising a service of any kind.”

The event will take place at Chesterfield and District Crematorium, Chesterfield Road, Brimington, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, S43 1AU.

No booking is needed, so feel free to just come along. For more details, please call the crematorium on (01246) 345888 or email
