Many factors affect the time it takes to cremate a person, including body mass and the materials from which the coffin is manufactured, however the average time for an adult cremation is 1.5 – 2 hours. The complete process from insertion into the cremator to cooling and internment of the ashes ready for can take up to 4 hours.

Due to some planned works, the Manse Terrace Entrance will be closed on Wednesday 15 November from 6.00am to 9.30am. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
