Crematorium information

Moray Crematorium stands on a site that has housed a church for over 200 years. The current church was rebuilt in the Gothic style in 1886 as Enzie South Parish Church and is a listed building. The crematorium, which opened in June 1999, has retained many of the original features of the church, including the original Wadsworth pipe organ and the original church bell.

Our multi-faith chapel can seat up to 180 people and the provision of speakers in the foyer and under the porte-cochere (entrance) means that larger services can also be accommodated. Both the chapel and gardens of remembrance are readily accessible by the disabled and we are proud to have won an award in the Best Refurbished Building category for our disabled services. We also provide a hearing loop.

Set in approximately six acres of ground, amidst the gently rolling hills of the Moray countryside, we offer a wide range of memorials to suit all tastes and our peaceful, tranquil gardens provide a quiet haven and restful sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

At Moray you are assured of courtesy, confidentiality and a friendly approach to discussing your requirements whether this is to discuss the funeral service itself or to discuss the various memorial options available to you.

Opening Hours

Our opening hours are 9.00am - 5.00pm Monday to Friday. The building contains the Book of Remembrance which is open at weekends by appointment.

Parking

There are 100 parking spaces available (3 disabled).

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

  • The crematorium staff will be available to help and assist you during the time at the crematorium, showing you both in and out of the chapel at the appropriate times.
