Cambridge Crematorium occupies a peaceful site, with its beautiful gardens, natural woodland, and tranquil water areas, all containing an abundance of wildlife, providing a variety of ways in which families can commemorate and remember loved ones.
The Crematorium is also a suitable funeral venue, regardless of whether the funeral is faith-based or not and offers a choice of chapel depending on your preference for the service.
The Crematorium was opened in 1938 as a private concern before being taken over in 1950 by Cambridge City Council. The East Chapel was opened in 1938 and the West Chapel opened in 1991.
There are two cloisters, one devoted to the East Chapel and one for the West Chapel, where floral tributes are displayed following the funeral service. The cloisters also have memorial stone plaques, which may be inscribed and/or personalised.
The grounds have been fully landscaped and provide a secluded and peaceful place where loved ones' ashes can be scattered. Ornamental shrubs, roses and trees help to create a relaxing area where you can sit on seats dedicated to the memory of loved ones. The woodland is a tranquil and beautiful area with a variety of trees, shrubs and in the spring-time abundant with aconites, daffodils, snowdrops and bluebells.
Two large granite books of remembrance are placed at the entrance of the woodland to commemorate loved ones. We also have more formal areas with memorial vaults for the ashes of loved ones, situated under pergolas and beside ornamental ponds.
