The Association of Private Crematoria and Cemeteries
The Association can trace its roots back to 1924. Today it represents 55 crematoria and 13 cemeteries. The prime aim of the Association is to provide quiet surroundings for the bereaved by ensuring that the highest professional standards are applied to every aspect of cremation and cemetery services. The private sector have met the needs of both rural and urban communities by developing and operating 48 out of 56 new crematoria opened since 1985 – over 85% of the total. Such developments have had a very beneficial effect on the environment by significantly reducing the distance and the time it takes the bereaved to reach their nearest crematorium and/or cemetery.
