Incorporated in 2003, Memoria is a small family-run business with a board of directors that have over 90 years experience in the funeral sector. They have a commitment to service which is well summarised by their mission statement:
“Memoria has a mission to provide exceptional standards of service and facility to the bereaved families that use its crematoria and gardens of remembrance. This is because it is not only commercially sensible to do so but also because it is an essential act of human decency towards people who have just lost a much loved member of their family or friend. Bereavement is the price we must all pay for the joy of loving and being loved. We realise that we are unable to eradicate such pain but we also know it is our responsibility and duty to be as efficient, kind, respectful and polite as humanly possible to our clients at their time of grief, and thereafter when they return to remember their cherished relatives or friends. Therefore it is our aim to provide immaculately clean and tidy facilities in tranquil and beautiful surroundings attended by people who are sincerely dedicated to our mission, and who take a great pride in their work as a result.”

The Environmental Protection Act 1990 along with the introduction of Mercury Abatement in 2004 means the crematorium will produce NO smoke at all and NO smell whatsoever. With this in mind, the modern crematorium is an excellent neighbour, with well-tended grounds and comprehensive landscaping.
The Crematorium would operate between 9:00am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday; and Saturday 9:00am to midday, although in exceptional circumstances other times may be available. Peak times for crematoria are outside of the everyday rush hours and usually occur between 10:00am and 3:00pm. Services at the crematorium would operate on a 1 hour cycle to ensure that there is no cross over between mourners arriving and leaving for each service. Events at the showground would also be restricted to Sundays and bank holidays to avoid any disturbance to mourners.
