The cremation of a human body is a highly emotional occasion and the officials of Preston Crematorium never forget this, creating and maintaining an atmosphere of reverence and respect throughout the entire proceedings.
Each coffin given into the care of the Crematorium is cremated separately and in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and Process Guidance Note 5/2(91) as amended.
Metal fragments found amongst cremated remains are disposed of in the grounds of the crematorium; they are never salvaged for any purpose.
Cremators and all other mechanical apparatus used in the Crematorium are regularly overhauled, cleaned and kept in good repair to ensure perfect working order.
All cremations are carried out according to regulations made under the provisions of the Cremations Act and appropriate statutory provisions and regulations applicable to Preston City Council. No cremation can take place without the written authority of the Cemetery and Cremation Manager and a Medical Referee.
