Tour behind the scenes of the crematorium


This Event  is kindly sponsored by Sacred Stones

Death turns into life, fear becomes reflection, loss transforms into stories and grief journeys to a place of peace. Our carefully crafted barrows provide you with a place of beauty and tranquillity in the English countryside. Somewhere your life is celebrated, your ashes laid to rest, and your loved ones have time to reflect, heal and come to terms with their loss.​

Our thanks to the Cambridge City Crematorium as our brilliant hosts once again.
The site has plenty of parking. The event is free entry. Some workshops and tours need pre-booking.
