A change in Scottish law from April 2019 means that there are now 7 separate application forms for cremation. The forms are numbered from A1 (application to cremate an adult or child) through to A7 (application to cremate body parts). Not all application forms can be used by individuals, forms A4 to A7 are for use by Health body/Local Authority only.
The available application forms for use by individuals are:
Please choose the form which accurately meets your requirements.
All of the forms can be downloaded for completion online and signed digitally. Alternatively, you may wish to print them and complete them by hand.
Completed forms should be returned to the Crematorium at least 2 working days prior to the date of the service, together with a Form 14 (certificate of death registration) which will be issued by a Registrar.
Forms can be returned by:
- email to – email@example.com
- post to – The Hurlet Crematorium, Glasgow Road, East Renfrewshire G53 7TH
- or in person to the Crematorium Office.
If you complete form A1, A2 or A3 we also require a Service Details Form to be completed. This provides us with all the supplementary information we need to tailor the service to meet your specific individual requirements.
Our media partner, Wesley Media, has an extensive music library and can source most music that has been made commercially available for inclusion in your service. Please click here to view the music listings. If your choice of music is not included in the list, please make your requirements known to your Funeral Director who can organise this on your behalf.
Our Ceremony Hall has the flexibility to adapt the seating arrangements to suit small, intimate services through to large attendances where our overflow Waiting Room streams live images and audio of the service to mourners.

A6 – Application for Cremation of body parts after post-mortem exam or a whole body or body parts following an anatomical exam (For use by person authorised by the doctor, pathologist or anatomy teacher who has completed Form M or Form N)
