Arranging a cremation


When arranging a cremation in St Helens you will need to contact a funeral director.

They will make the process as easy as possible for you and will liaise directly with the Bereavement Services team.

There are two types of cremation service held at the crematorium:

  • Full - this is where the whole service is at the crematorium instead of a service being held at a church/place of worship.
  • Committal - this is a short service to commit the deceased for cremation, usually held after a service in a church/place of worship.

There are two ceremony halls at St Helens Crematorium 

  • Sunrise Ceremony Hall - This is the small ceremony hall that holds up to 30 people seated.  
  • Sunset Ceremony Hall - This is the main ceremony hall that holds up to 130 people seated.

If a self-arranged funeral service is required, please contact the Bereavement Services team for guidance on what forms of paperwork are necessary.
