Peaceful grounds

Cheltenham cemetery

The gardens of remembrance are provided for the dignified and reverent disposal of cremation ashes and are planted with trees and shrub beds. Two ponds, one formal with a fountain, add to the tranquility of the gardens.

A natural stream, flowing from the foot of the hills, winds its way through the gardens where it is crossed by the Cotswold stone foot bridges. All floral tributes are removed seven days after the cremation service to ensure that a high standard is maintained in the gardens.

Appointments can be made to witness the scattering of the remains. Families may wish to engage the services of a minister for the simple ceremony. Cremated remains may also be removed for the family's own private disposal.

However, please note:

If the cremated remains are to be buried in a grave or scattered in a crematorium Garden of Remembrance, prior arrangements must be made with the relevant cemetery or crematorium manager. You are not permitted to carry out this function yourself as various laws and regulations must be adhered to and records completed as to the final disposal of the remains.

For  further information please contact the cemetery and crematorium.
