A new, modern and environmentally advanced crematorium to serve local families
The Hurlet Crematorium is the latest Horizon development to be granted planning permission, and is located within East Renfrewshire, directly next to the Glasgow South and Renfrewshire boundaries.
The modern facility is set within an open and rural location adjacent to St Conval’s Cemetery.
The Ceremony Hall will benefit from uninterrupted and inspiring panoramic views across the surrounding Hurlet fields and hills, with the building and memorial space enclosed within tranquil landscaped and wild flower gardens.
The design of the facility is based on Horizon’s new and highly praised Clyde Coast & Garnock Valley Crematorium – clydecrematorium.co.uk – and will sensitively provide a crucial service for families from across East Renfrewshire and beyond.
Horizon Cremation is aiming to build a new generation of crematorium and deliver high levels of care within attractive, modern, buildings.
Our first facility on the Clyde Coast sets the tone for our projects. Fitting into the local area, it is built of traditional materials and has been thoughtfully designed and carefully set in a beautiful landscape.
A Special and Inspiring New Facility
Despite its size and growing older population, East Renfrewshire does not have a crematorium and families have no choice but to travel to the Linn in Glasgow, Woodside in Paisley or even further afield to access essential crematorium services.
On average, almost 70% of people in Scotland opt for cremation, with this number increasing year-on-year. Research carried out by Horizon found that within East Renfrewshire, the number of cremations is higher than the national average, reaching almost 80% in 2017.
At Horizon, we know how important it is to have access to a high-quality crematorium facility, staffed by caring and compassionate people, and the time and space that families need to hold a dignified funeral service and a celebration of their loved one passed.
The new Hurlet Crematorium will make a significant difference within the community and beyond, by providing hour-long funeral services and much needed crematorium capacity, particularly during winter months, ensuring that families no longer face distressing and unacceptably long waiting times in which to hold a funeral service.
The new Hurlet Crematorium in East Renfrewshire will be an inspiring, high-quality and environmentally advanced facility, designed to sensitively serve local families.
