Hold

We can keep the cremated remains safe at Thornhill for a 4 week period to give families more time to reach a decision. It is usually a good idea to make an appointment with the Enquiries Office at Thornhill to go through the options if this is something you are unsure about.

There are various after-cremation memorials available. Please see the memorials section for more information.
