Cremated Remains & Memorial Jewellery

The cremation process will take place at the crematorium on the same day as the funeral service under strict guidelines and code of practice. Each cremation takes place individually and the ashes are always kept separate and placed into a labelled cardboard box container provided by the crematorium.

Following the funeral service here is a guideline as to what happens next:

  • If you have requested for the ashes to be scattered at Emstrey Crematoriums’ Garden of Remembrance, this will take place unattended a few days after the service. 
  • The ashes should be available to collect from our office within a few days following the service, unless you have stated that you want to pick them up directly from the crematorium office.
  • You can if you wish decide to purchase a scatter tube, urn or casket from our show room before or after the funeral service.
  • We recommend that you give us at least 24hrs notice before coming to collect the ashes, so we can have them ready for you when you arrive.
  • Please be advised that we can only release the ashes to the person who is the ‘named applicant’ on all of the official funeral paperwork. If you would like someone else to collect the ashes on your behalf, we will need it in writing at least 24hrs before the nominated person arrives to collect the ashes.
  • When you come to our office to collect the ashes you will receive a certificate from the crematorium stating the name of the deceased and the date the cremation took place, which we recommend you keep safe. The ashes will also need to be signed for before we can release them.
  • Other choices for the resting place of the ashes include having an internment of the ashes or scattering the ashes into an existing funeral plot, burial ground, cemetery or woodland site. You may prefer to take them home until you make a final decision.
  • If you are planning to take the ashes out of the country you will need a signed letter from our office. We would like a few days notice in order to get this prepared for you. Alternatively; we can also arrange to have the ashes delivered to your address or further afield (there may be an additional cost).
  • We have a range of memorial jewellery and mementos that you may like to consider.
