An open day with a difference is being held - at Chesterfield crematorium.

The venue will open its doors to the public on Sunday, June 28, with visitors able to have a look behind the scenes at the workings of the crematorium.

Staff will be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have about cremations, burials or funeral services.

The open day starts at 11am and at 2pm there will be a service of remembrance with music, poems and time for reflection.

The service is open to all, allowing them to remember a loved one or friend and a gift of remembrance will be given to each family.

Visitors will also be able to see and spend time in the crematorium’s memorial gardens, including the newly opened Woodland Walk and Peter Pan memorial garden created with Chesterfield Sands - the stillbirth and neo-natal death charity - for families to remember a child who has died before, during or after birth.

The crematorium is managed by a joint committee on behalf of Bolsover District Council, Chesterfield Borough Council and North East Derbyshire District Council.
