Gedling Crematorium launches twilight funeral services


Gedling Crematorium now offers evening funeral services.

The bereaved can now book final farewells to their loved ones at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm from Monday to Friday, with a service of up to 40 minutes in the chapel.

Gedling Crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group, one of the UK’s largest independent owners and operators of crematoria and cemeteries.

Manager Giulia McDonough said: “We are always looking for ways to offer local families more choice when it comes to arranging funerals.

“Spring, Summer and early Autumn months should bring with them some beautiful twilight evenings, with the soothing backdrop of birdsong over our beautiful grounds.

“We believe this could provide a comforting environment for a funeral.

“In addition, offering later services may help those with friends and relatives who want to pay their respects but have difficulty attending a daytime service because of other commitments.

“We pride ourselves on providing exceptional care, and part of that involves enabling families to create a uniquely personal funeral service as a final farewell to their loved one, and opportunity to be able to choose a twilight service is just another way in which we provide more choice for those we support.

“Bereaved families can now request this service when making arrangements with their funeral director.”

  1. What a great idea about the funeral services being off in a more flexible way. It will make a difference as the setting in the area is lovely apart from the very heavy flow of traffic along the top.
