Direct cremation funerals are becoming increasingly popular, for families or individuals who want a "no fuss" funeral that is straight forward, simple to organise and cheaper than other types of funerals.
Over 3/4 of all funerals in the UK are cremations. To learn more about what happens during a cremation ceremony, head over to our 'Step-By-Step' page.
Our most popular crematorium is the outstanding Kirkleatham Memorial Park & Crematorium, located between Kirkleatham and the village of Yearby just off the A171.
The Kirkleatham Memorial Park and Crematorium offers cremation, natural burial and traditional burial. The natural burial section will cater for families who wish for burial in a non-traditional manner, respecting the work of nature and without any visible memorial. This form of burial is proving to be in greater demand than ever before.
The chapel seats 100 people, has the potential to stand and seat 200 by including the foyer space and can accommodate services of over 400 people on the site by piping the service outside under the porte-cochere.
