Options available for the final resting place of cremated remains

Gardens of Remembrance

After cremation, there are a number of options for families who are unsure about the final resting place for remains.

  • At Park Wood, cremated remains can be strewn in the Gardens of Remembrance by our staff.
  • We have seasonal locations for the strewing of cremated remains. These are recorded in our statutory records for the purpose of future reference. Fresh flowers are allowed to be left in these areas. No other memorabilia is permitted and will be removed without notice.
  • An appointment can be made for the family to attend while the cremated remains are strewn.
  • There are no more charges for this service, provided the cremation was undertaken at Park Wood.

Burial of cremated remains

Do you want to cremate remains to be interred, not strewn? If so, garden of remembrance plots can be bought with a granite plaque. These hold up to two caskets each. They are available at Brighouse, Rastrick, Clifton or Stoney Royd.

There is also the option to buy a half grave space.

Ash Vaults are available at Brighouse Cemetery. This is another option instead of being buried below ground.

For advice or fees involved to buy the exclusive right of burial in a grave space: Contact Bereavement Services.


Your funeral director will advise you on your options. You may wish to collect cremated remains for private disposal or you may need more time to make a decision. We will hold remains for three months at which point we will contact you.

Keeping your crematorium clean and safe

People choose to remember their loved ones in different ways. This includes putting mementoes on gravesides. In recent years, this has increased and raised a number of concerns:

  • Items being stolen or broken.
  • Complaints about access and safety.
  • Items scattered over cemeteries by animals or the wind, making them untidy and unsafe.

We working to make sure that our spaces are kept clean and tidy for everyone to visit their loved ones.

Most memorials come with a flower vase for floral tributes. Please refrain from adding extra vases, plastic ornaments, solar lights and similar. If you choose to leave them, please be aware that they may be removed without notice at any time. No glass or metal items are allowed. Any items found to be broken, decayed or not in keeping with the surroundings, will be removed. We are not liable for any damage or theft of extra items that are left. All items are left at your own risk.

Remembrance Day

  • Memorial crosses can stay for two weeks after the event.

Christmas wreaths

  • These can stay until 31st January. Please remove all items you wish to keep by this date.

If there is a problem, talk to staff during your visit who will be happy to help.
