Simplicity Cremations in Newark and Sherwood

Choosing Simplicity Cremations for your loved one's farewell gives you the flexibility to arrange a low cost, alternative funeral service of your choice, without having to use a funeral director. Sherwood Forest Crematorium can be found among the green hills between New Ollerton, Boughton, Wellow and Kirkton in the district of Newark and Sherwood. Opened in January 2006 by the Bishop of Southwell, it was the first in the UK to be designed and built with environmental protection in mind, safeguarding against heavy metal pollution, which is a key factor in the destruction of marine habitats. Whether you are religious or non-religious, Sherwood Forest Crematorium can cater for all beliefs and cultures, treating every family with the same kindness. You are always welcome to visit the crematorium, whether that is to spend time in the peaceful, natural setting of the grounds, or to talk to the members of staff who work there. Sherwood Forest Crematorium holds two services of remembrance each year, as well as an annual Open Day. Here the team will be able to answer any questions about the crematorium. At Simplicity Cremations, we will care for your loved one with compassion and respect, and allow you to make the funeral arrangements in a way that suits you and your family.
