Final Resting Place

It is often difficult to decide on the final resting place, we are here to help you decide, and consider the many options available.

Final Resting Place

Sympathetic staff are available to discuss with you the options available for your loved one’s final resting place after a cremation, which include:

  • Garden of Remembrance – at the Millennium Cemetery on Tuddenham Road, approximately two minutes by car from the crematorium.
  • Garden Columbarium Wall – the wall contains individual niches providing space for up to two sets of cremated remains.
  • Cremation Plots – at the Millennium Cemetery on Tuddenham Road, for the interment of up to four sets of cremated remains.
  • Millennium Vaults – the vaults are located to the left of our very attractive rose gardens and close to the natural pond in the Millennium Cemetery. Each vault can hold up to four sets of cremated remains depending on the size of the individual urn or casket.
  • Niches – a limited number of open niches are available in the Temple of Remembrance. Cremated remains are placed in a green marble casket bearing an inscription of your choice.
  • Memorial roses – we have several rose beds that are pre-planted with standard roses. Up to two sets of cremated remains can be laid to rest by each rose.
  • Trees – cremated remains can be scattered near to the base of a pre-planted tree in the Millennium Cemetery. We recommend that you visit our office to look at the types of tree and positions available.
  • Existing family graves – If you already have a family grave in Ipswich cemetery it may be possible for cremated remains to be buried there. Consent will be required from the registered owner.

Cremated remains can be left on Temporary Deposit at the Crematorium for up to three months. This should give you time to explore all the options available without feeling rushed into making such an important decision.

Should you wish to remove cremated remains from the crematorium, your Funeral Director or the applicant for the cremation can collect them from the Cemetery Office.
