The Crematorium is beautifully situated in undulating country bounded by fields and woodlands and provides a peaceful resting-place in picturesque surroundings. The Chesterfield and District Joint Crematorium Committee purchased this 20-acre site near Brimington in 1954 and carefully landscaped it with trees, shrubs and flowers.  The building was officially opened by The Rt. Hon. The Earl of Verulam on 31st October 1959.  Anyone can be cremated here - irrespective of local connections or religious beliefs. Our staff aim to provide the highest standard of service to the bereaved, offering sympathetic help, information and advice.

An area, set aside for the strewing of cremated remains, is situated to the north of the crematorium buildings. In this area cremated remains are strewn, the location being recorded so other members of the same family may be strewn in the same area. 

An atmosphere of peace and tranquillity prevails in the surroundings of the Crematorium.  

The passing of close relatives or friends is always a time of sorrow and stress, but within the quiet and peaceful grounds of the Crematorium, everything has been done to make the occasion as reverent, as consoling and as respectful as possible.

Crematorium Chapel

The Crematorium Chapel, which is equipped with an organ to provide musical accompaniment,  provides seating for up to 80 people.  Adjoining the Chapel is a waiting room and the ante-room which houses the Book of Remembrance.  Just to the rear of the buildings is the covered floral display area, in which relatives and friends can view floral tributes, following the service.  The floral display area is accessible to people in wheelchairs.

The Crematorium Chapel entrance and exit are accessible for wheelchair users, and are either level or gradually ramped throughout.  There is also ramped access to the Crematorium Office.  A wheelchair is available for loan, if required.  For the hard of hearing, induction loops have been installed in the Chapel and in the reception area of the Crematorium Office.  Specially adapted toilet facilities, suitable for disabled persons, are provided adjoining the Waiting Room, opposite to the Chapel entrance..Most of our information signs include notation in braille.  Guide dogs and assistance dogs are permitted to enter all parts of the buildings and grounds.

It is wonderful to view the listings for those dear ones who we know the exact date of their passing but it would be a great help if it were possible to search under a name as with some other crematoria eg Bramcote.
