On Friday 21st June, The Rt. Hon. Eric Pickles, MP for Brentwood and Ongar visited
Bentley Crematorium & Cemetery in Brentwood. We at Cratus had arranged this visit on behalf of our client Dignity who operate the crematorium along with 38 others in the UK. Dignity are looking to increase the number of Councils they work with as Councils increasingly look to commission more services. This was an opportunity to showcase one of their newest sites to Eric Pickles, whose constituency Bentley Crematorium is in.
The Rt. Hon. Eric Pickles said, “The setting for Bentley Crematorium is peaceful and
beautifully landscaped, which I am sure will be of great comfort to the families visiting on what will be, naturally, a sad occasion. I was very impressed by the facilities on offer for services, and the air of quiet calm which surrounds the new building and its grounds.
Visiting a crematorium is never going to be a happy event, but this new crematorium
offers local families the chance to lay their loved ones to rest with dignity and respect in peaceful surroundings.
