The choice between burial and cremation is a very personal one and may be influenced by many factors, including family tradition, religion or the wishes of the person who has died.

What is a crematorium?

A crematorium is the building where cremations are held. It is the main alternative to holding a funeral in church. In a crematorium there is a space to hold a service, and there is a cemetery and gardens outside.

The service

If you choose a cremation, one of the first things to decide is what sort of service you would like and where to hold it. You might want to hold it the crematorium or, if you prefer, you can hold the service in another place, like a church, and then have a shorter service called a ‘committal’ at the crematorium.


The charge for the crematorium will vary depending on where you go.Tthe costs for all local crematorium in Norfolk and Suffolk are inclusive in our cremation funeral pack

Regulations for cremations

There are restrictions about what may be cremated with the person who has died – for example materials such as some metals are forbidden. If you would particularly like an item to stay with the person who has died you can speak to your Funeral Director.
