A Modern Crematorium for Cheshire West

The Need for a Crematorium to Serve Cheshire West

Horizon Cremation has submitted a planning application to build a new, high-specification and environmentally advanced community crematorium in Hooton.

At present, local people tend to use the crematoria at Landican and Blacon.   But these are amongst the busiest crematoria in the UK and neither is able to cope with the demands placed upon them, particularly in the busy winter months.   Nor will they cope with the significant increase in annual deaths in this area (32% more deaths per year in 20 years time) forecast by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Chester Crematorium is a modern attractive building but was built with only one chapel and so is limited in how many services it can hold.   Landican Crematorium was built in 1934 and is a product of its time.   It struggles to cope both with the numbers wishing to use it and the demands of modern funerals, with its prominent Christian religious iconography and lack of options for visual tributes and music.

Horizon Cremation builds beautiful bespoke crematoria in which caring staff offer the best possible service to families.   The crematorium at Hooton will have a one-hour service slot allowing plenty of time to hold a meaningful ceremony.

We have large comfortable waiting rooms so mourners do not have to wait outside for a service to start.   The buildings are set in a beautiful landscape which are captured in the ceremony hall window providing a lovely backdrop against which the funeral can be held.
