Wellingborough Council invests in the Nene Valley Crematorium

Published Friday, 28 June 2019

The Borough Council of Wellingborough has invested £167,000 into delivering a memorial wall at Nene Valley Crematorium.

The crematorium, which opened in September 2016, provides a tranquil setting for people to reflect and the investment will enhance the existing green spaces.

A memorial wall, which has been designed to provide visitors with a space to remember loved ones, opened in April. It is proposed for there to be some planting carried out surrounding the memorial wall, which is anticipated to be complete this summer.

Leader of the Borough Council of Wellingborough, Cllr Martin Griffiths, said: “The crematorium has been successful in providing an essential service for local residents and as an investment project for the borough council.

“We are now investing in the facilities in order to improve the appearance and general ambience space for visitors.”

Chairman for the Board of Directors, Cllr Paul Bell, said: “We are delighted to be investing capital funding into providing a memorial wall and improved green spaces for visitors to the crematorium to appreciate during difficult times and periods of reflection.”

Crematorium Manager, Tracy Lawrence, added: “We are dedicated to providing a tailor-made service for bereaved people, and ensuring that the crematorium is a peaceful facility for them. The investment from the council will contribute to creating a tranquil setting at the crematorium to continue to enhance the available choices for visitors.”

Nene Valley Crematorium is operated by Wellingborough Bereavement Services Limited.
