Crematorium


The Grimsby Crematorium provides a committal chapel, memorial facilities and gardens of remembrance.

View upcoming services at the crematorium.

When a death or stillbirth has happened in North East Lincolnshire, it should be registered with us by law within five days.

Funeral service

You have an allocated time of 40 minutes which includes 30 minutes chapel time. Additional time can be arranged prior to the day of the funeral. There is an opportunity for families to personalise the service or ceremony with their favourite pieces of music or poetry.

The crematorium has an organ and a media system for music and the use of a microphone. Both cemetery chapels have hymn books and organs available, but no music system so you may bring your own.

Funerals at the crematorium can involve a funeral director, a recognised religious person, a humanist or you may prefer to do your own service with or without any religious content. All we ask is that you be aware of the length of time you may need.

Disposal of cremated remains

There are different options for the disposal of the cremated remains once the service has taken place.

  • Scatter the cremated remains within the Crematorium grounds unwitnessed, or witnessed which would require an appointment.

If you have a wooden casket, polytainer or environmentally friendly tube you can:

  • retain the cremated remains for disposal elsewhere
  • inter the cremated remains within a grave in Scartho Road Cemetery, Grimsby or Beacon Avenue Cemetery, Cleethorpes.

You must fill in the instruction and authorisation of the disposal of the cremated remains (forms J and K), and take any other paperwork to the Bereavement Services office.
