Arranging a cremation

Cremation is now more popular than burial in the UK, but many people are unsure what's involved or how to make arrangements.

Honor Oak Crematorium, situated in Camberwell New Cemetery, is the only crematorium in Southwark. The chapel was built in 1939 and seats up to 70 people. It's surrounded by memorial gardens that are open every day of the year. 

Our Bereavement Service manages the crematorium and offers help to anyone wishing to arrange a cremation.
