This event is no longer available.

Yes, you did read the title correctly, we are offering a group of Spice members the chance to explore all areas of this new and very modern Crematorium. We received such positive feedback from our visit in March (see below), that we decided we must offer another group of Spicers the opportunity to book.

The Manager of this Crematorium is Jo Walker who is a Spice member and is also very keen to promote a healthy understanding of the bereavement industry. Jo tells us that when talking to other members on events, she often hears myths and misunderstandings of what happens behind the scenes at a crematorium as well as meeting those who find the whole subject difficult to engage with, ‘taboo’ even. However, it is a sad fact that most of us will have to organise a funeral at one point in our lives and it is a lot easier if you have had the opportunity to learn about such things and ask all the questions you want to ask, before you are emotionally involved.

For that reason, Jo has come to us with the idea of running an ‘access all areas’ tour to dispel the myths and hopefully make the subject of death a little less taboo. It's also hoped that our tour might help to make some difficult conversations with our loved ones easier. Jo has been in the cremation industry for over 6 years and previously worked in hospices so she has a wealth of bereavement knowledge to share.

We hope you will also be impressed and reassured by the levels of care, respect and dignity that are demonstrated by everyone who works in a crematorium – particularly those that we wouldn’t normally meet, but are trusted with the final journey of our loved ones.
