The Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities Services has rated the services of Cardross Crematorium as excellent following a recent inspection.
A range of aspects of the facilities provided by Cardross were examined including cremation, grounds and memorials, service and staff and overall quality of the premises.
The Crematorium Inspector reported an excellent level of service provision, giving the facilities a score of 411 out of a possible maximum of 455 and achieving over 90% compliance.
The crematorium scored particularly well in the administration, premises and facilities, and grounds and memorialisation categories and the report made no further recommendations for improvements to the services provided.
Policy Lead for Climate Change and Environment, Councillor Ross Moreland, said: “The services and facilities provided by Cardross Crematorium have historically been of a very high standard.
“This latest inspection report is an excellent outcome and our congratulations go to the retiring Crematorium Superintendent and his team.”
