Kettering Crematorium ranked top of six national performance indicators

Kettering Crematorium has once again been ranked top of the Association of Public Sector Excellence’s (APSE) national performance indicators. The results show that the Crematorium offers the best value for money per funeral service in six different categories, whilst still offering a quality service gained from over 70 years’ experience in beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens. As part of its value for money programme the crematorium has also recently introduced a pre-paid cremation plan to help ease the financial burden of funeral costs.

The Crematorium also finished in the top 25% for another of the 7 Apse measures of performance. 

Kettering Crematorium & Cemeteries Team also recently won Best Service Team at the APSE Service Awards, and was a runner up as Crematorium of the Year at the Good Funeral Awards. 

Shirley Plenderleith, Head of Public Services at Kettering Borough Council, said:

“Kettering Crematorium continues to provide a high quality service and we’re delighted that this is highlighted in the recent APSE indicators. We’ve also introduced a new pre-paid cremation plan, as we continue to work hard to ease the burden of a funeral in a family’s time of need.”

Cllr Ian Jelley, Kettering Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Environment, said:

“The Crematorium’s impressive performance rankings continue to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to providing the best crematorium and cemeteries services possible. At Kettering we are aware of the problems that funeral poverty can cause families and strive to provide the most cost efficient service.”
