There are a number of options you can choose from as the final resting place for the ashes of your loved one. We can collect the ashes for you and arrange with you what you would like to do with them. Of course, if you would like, you can collect them yourself.
Alternatively they can remain within the grounds and be scattered or placed individually into the ground next to another loved one. We will ask you what you would like to do but there is no rush whatsoever to decide. The crematorium will be happy to keep them, free of charge, for up to 28 days afterwards if you are unsure.
After the service at Eastbourne Crematorium; the room holding the Book of Remembrance is located within the main building. You are always welcome to go and read through it. It will be inscribed for every day of the year. Some of our families will revisit on certain anniversaries – you will just need to book an appointment to visit.
It will be inscribed for every day of the year. Some of our families will revisit on certain anniversaries – you will just need to book an appointment to visit. This means that the celebration of the life of your loved one is not limited to one day, and this book is visited regularly for many years by families following a funeral service with both C. Waterhouse & Sons and Heathfield Funeral Service.
Each crematorium offers different options for memorials and this will be personal choice for you. We can work with you to ensure the memorial is exactly how you and your loved ones would like.
