Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes? Ever had questions about the cremation process or bereavement that you would like an answer on? Let’s talk about it!

Why not come along to our Open Day at Thornhill Crematorium?

Cardiff Council’s Bereavement Services are holding an open day to help dispel any myths or misgivings you may have about the cremation process and raise public awareness on the services available to you from Bereavement Services, local Funeral Directors and Stone Masons.

Come along and meet with the Bereavement Services Team. Take part in a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the crematorium. There will be information stands from our partnership bereavement related groups; a panel of industry experts for a question and answer session and a talk on coping with bereavement and loss by Father Lionel Fanthorpe.
