Crematorium information

Glynn Valley Crematorium is situated on the main A38, Bodmin to Liskeard road and is 10 minutes from Bodmin Parkway Railway Station and is also within easy reach of Bodmin town centre.

The Crematorium opened in February 1989 and has 10 acres of well landscaped Gardens of Remembrance.

We are here to help you with whatever you would like for the funeral service. Our dedicated and caring staff treat every family with dignity and respect. At the service we will be there to help you every step of the way.

Our St Petroc’s Chapel features a magnificent picture window which is admired by many for its beautiful views over the tranquil valley and caters for multi-cultural and multi-faith requirements. The chapel seats 56 and we have CD and Wesley system facilities. We also pay particular attention to the needs of the disabled, with disabled access, including disabled parking, wheelchair access, a wheelchair, Braille hymn book and toilet facilities. A hearing loop system is also provided.

A waiting room is available for relatives and friends to await the arrival of the funeral cortege and all the usual facilities are available and maintained to a high standard.

We have a large range of memorials available at Glynn Valley Crematorium and they can provide a lasting insight into the achievements and interests of an individual or family.

Our tranquil Gardens of Remembrance are open all year round and host a wide variety of memorials including rose beds and private gardens and a specially designed memorial garden for bereaved parents. In 2010, an idyllic lake complete with stream, bridge and meandering paths was developed, enhancing the already beautiful setting of Forest View, transforming the area and changing its name to Lake View. As a whole our Gardens of Remembrance offer a peaceful and timeless haven for families to visit. Our memorial staff can show you around the gardens at any time and help you to make your choice of memorial.

We hold an Open Day and Carol Service each year where we invite families to attend a service of memorial.

Our fees

We know that understanding what goes into the cost of a funeral can sometimes be difficult for families. We also recognise that understanding the overall financial implications of arranging a funeral is important. To this end we have included a downloadable price list of the services available to you.

It is important to us that any confusion is completely removed to help families to fully understand what the Cremation Fee includes, and what this means as part of the wider cost of the funeral. We have outlined the elements that are necessary to provide a cremation service to you below, although of course we would be happy to discuss any further queries you might have directly with you. You can contact us at any time to talk through any further options and any fees that might apply.

The cremation fee includes the following:

  • All professional services relating to the administration and registration of the cremation, in line with statutory regulation.
  • The use of our Chapel along with the assistance of a trained staff member on the day of the service.
  • The provision of music during the funeral service (please contact the Crematorium for details of our available options).
  • The sensitive handling of the cremation in line with environmental legislation.
  • The appropriate national environmental levy for mercury abatement.
  • The scattering or interment of the ashes within our Gardens of Remembrance, or the preparation for their removal along with a suitable container and the Cremation Certificate.
  • Alternatively, we will look after the ashes for an indefinite period without charge whatsoever.

We also offer weekend services, fees for which along with  other available services are detailed in the PDF attachment entitled Cremation Price List
