If it often assumed that cremations can only be carried out by a funeral director. However this is not correct.
If you intend to organise a cremation, the details you will need are available in the Charter for the Bereaved. This is produced by the Institute of Burial and Cremation Administration who also have a number of useful related leaflets.
They can be contacted at the following address:

Horsham St Faith
Alternatively, you can telephone them on 01603/ 891123.
