Crematorium information

Sherwood Forest Crematorium, dedicated in January 2006 by the Bishop of Southwell, was the first crematorium in the UK built with equipment designed to protect against heavy metal pollution, a key factor in the destruction of marine habitats.

Ourhighly trained staff are available at all times to advise bereaved families about our facilities and memorials and are on hand to discuss any individual queries or requests.

We work closely with funeral directors to ensure that the wishes of families are met in the most dignified manner. We can cater for many different types of services both religious and non-religious. If you would like music as part of the service, we have space for a traditional organ or clients can choose the Wesley system which gives access to thousands of modern and classical pieces of music.

Services last 45 minutes, which allows families time to gather and leave without the pressure of other funerals waiting for access. Longer services and private memorial services can also be arranged upon request.

The crematorium is open for inspection at any time by members of the public and holds two services of remembrance a year and an annual Open Day when our staff are happy to answer any questions visitors have about the crematorium.
