How do I arrange a cremation?

If you would like to arrange the cremation of a loved one who has passed, please contact a Funeral Director who will arrange this on your behalf.

What is cremation?

Cremation is a process that uses extreme heat to turn the remains of a loved one who has passed into ashes, also known as cremated remains.

If you choose to have your service at Bournemouth Crematorium or Poole Crematorium (Halo Ceremony Hall), your loved one will be cremated in the crematory at Bournemouth Crematorium.

For services at Poole Crematorium, your loved one will be conveyed with dignity and respect to Bournemouth Crematorium into the care of the crematory team for cremation. There is no extra cost charged by BCP Bereavement Care if you choose to convey your loved one by using our in-house conveyancing services. However, some funeral directors may offer to convey your loved one directly to Bournemouth Crematorium using their own vehicle and staff and may charge an additional fee for providing this service.
