Preston Crematorium is located in the north-east of this Lancashire town. Established in 1962, the crematorium is a self-contained site featuring well manicured lawns and woodland, close to the River Ribble.
The crematorium is non-denominational and open to all. The chapel interior is understated, with pew seating and an organ available for hymns or music during the service. A car park is available onsite.
The Memorial Gardens surrounding the Preston Crematorium are a tranquil place to scatter your loved one’s ashes. If you choose to mark this with a commemorative item, there are a variety of ways to do so. An entry can be made in the Book of Remembrance, which is viewable every day except Christmas, and online at any time.
Another option is a sanctum vault, or if you prefer, a memorial garden vase block and plaque, or a granite mushroom plaque at the entrance to the woodland scattering area. Memorial benches, wall tablets, and vases are all also available for the Memorial Gardens tributes.
