Croydon Crematorium funds new bereavement projects via our charity

The donation was made via The Institute of Cemetery & Crematorium Management’s metal recycling initiative to our dedicated charity.

The funds will develop a new, peaceful memorial garden and enhance the mortuary’s outside area used by relatives following viewings of loved ones. These projects will help to provide a comfortable, mindful and peaceful area for bereaved families.

The ‘Crocus Garden of Remembrance’ will support families affected by the loss of a child by providing a peaceful place for parents to walk, sit and reflect. A new mortuary memorial garden will feature a paving area, stepping stones, green living wall and benches.

Elaine Clancy, Joint Chief Nurse, said:

“We are very grateful for this donation which will support many bereaved families during a difficult, challenging and often traumatic time. These projects will help to provide a compassionate, effective and sensitive bereavement service at Croydon University Hospital to local people.”

Kevin Pilkington, Head of Bereavement Services, Croydon Crematorium, commented:

“We were delighted to help such a worthy cause which is particularly dear to the hearts of many local families, via our Recycling of Metals scheme. Croydon University Hospital is a close partner of ours and it’s rewarding to be able to support the community in this way.”
