Kettering Crematorium launches pre-paid cremation service

Published: Thursday, 13th April 2017

First Crematorium in the area to introduce pre-paid cremation plans, helping to ease the burden of funeral costs in a family’s time of need

Kettering Borough Council has launched a new pre-paid cremation service, helping to tackle rising funeral costs for residents of Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and beyond. We are the first in the area to offer this (and we believe only the second in England), which allows families to secure a future service at a set price to help beat rising costs.

Cremation plans are available to purchase at a fixed cost today, potentially saving money in the future and easing the financial burden on loved ones. Allowing families to secure a cremation fee set today is an aggressive attempt to fight this, alongside our 3 years of fee freezes. Find out more by calling 01536 525 722, emailing bereavementservices@kettering.gov.uk or visiting www.kettering.gov.uk/crematorium
