About the crematorium

Overview

Late last year the Borough Council appointed a specialist company (Cemetery Development Services) to undertake a feasibility assessment for a crematorium on a site owned by the council on the A47 Leicester Road between Hinckley and Earl Shilton. 

Why here?

With the nearest available crematorium currently located in Nuneaton, the proposed crematorium development could provide an alternative affordable cremation facility with reduced waiting times for services and reduced travelling times for Hinckley and Bosworth residents.

The feasibility study concluded there is sufficient demand for a crematorium at this location, noting that housing growth is estimated to further increase the demand for cremations in the next few years.
 
The facility would complement the council’s cemetery services, create jobs and enhance the appearance of the site, and would fit well with the burial services provided as a Borough Council.
