Cremation is an ancient form of disposal of the dead by exposure to heat that has been revived since around 1900 and now accounts for 70% of funerals in this country.


There are many myths that surround cremation and persist in the public consciousness, despite increased media coverage of death and bereavement, and events such as open days at crematoria.


This information has been provided to help dispel the myths and to inform you as to what cremation entails. Please contact the Bereavement Services Office on 01202 526238 (during normal office hours) if you require any further information or would like to arrange to visit the Bournemouth Crematorium.
