Penmount Crematorium near Truro has been awarded Gold Status for the third year in a row by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM).
The award recognises the high level of service provided to funeral congregations, funeral directors and clergy. The ICCM set the standard for the burial and crematorium industry.
A publicly owned, self financed facility administered by Cornwall Council , the crematorium is housed on a secluded country estate of 28 acres, 11 of which have been developed as Gardens of Remembrance.
“We are extremely proud to be recognised once again at this level by the ICCM,” said Susan Cannon, Bereavement Services Manager for Cornwall Council. “I would like to thank all my staff who do an outstanding job year on year.”
“I am delighted that we have once again gained the Gold Status,” added Councillor Steve Double, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for the Environment.
“This standard gives reassurance about the services we provide and reflects the commitment of the team at Penmount.”
