Sherwood Forest Crematorium

Sherwood Forest Crematorium

Sherwood Forest Crematorium, consecrated in January 2006 by the Bishop of Southwell, stands as the pioneering crematorium in the UK equipped to counter heavy metal pollution, a significant factor in the degradation of marine habitats. Its commitment to environmental responsibility reflects a forward-thinking approach in its design and operation.

The facility is distinguished by its highly trained staff, who are available round the clock to guide bereaved families through the features and memorial options. Working closely with funeral directors, the crematorium ensures the dignified fulfilment of families' wishes, accommodating various types of services, both religious and non-religious. Musical preferences are catered to with options such as a traditional organ or the Wesley system, offering a vast selection of modern and classical pieces.

Services are structured to last 45 minutes, allowing families to gather and depart without the constraint of imminent funerals. For those seeking extended or private memorial services, arrangements can be tailored to individual preferences. The crematorium welcomes public inspection at any time, emphasising transparency, and hosts two services of remembrance each year, fostering a sense of community and remembrance.

Please remember: you need to book an appointment at the Sherwood Forest Crematorium in order to discuss your plans. We’d be happy to help you do this, so feel free to get in touch with one of our personal advisers.
