Our Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility

The Hurlet Crematorium is set within the rolling Hurlet Hills and is very easily accessible for families located across East Renfrewshire, Renfrewshire, and Glasgow South.

We conduct our services ethically and with the upmost sensitivity, ensuring that important social, cultural, economic, and environmental matters are all managed with the care and attention.

Respect our environment & support our community

The crematorium is set within 1.9 hectares of open landscape, surrounded by the the rolling Hurlet Hills. Our location is tranquil, free of noise and distractions, and we believe it is very befitting place in which to hold your funeral service.                                                                                                                                                We support our local community’s economy by employing local people who intimately know the local communities and the character of the local areas we serve.

We are committed to sourcing materials from local suppliers and local service providers wherever we can.

Protect Our Environment

Our facility is currently home to a wide variety of birds which nest in the large, wooded areas surrounding our gardens of remembrance.

We are also fortunate to be surrounded by rolling green grassland hills which are grazed by beautiful and curious cattle from the local farm.

All of our systems are managed to actively reduce our carbon footprint and to boost the biodiversity of our site.

We have been very successful in our strategies to increase the biodiversity of our sites, and at the Hurlet, we know, that over a short period of time, we will boost the bird and insect wildlife across the site thanks to the extensive pollinator and tree planting that we are currently putting in place.

Invest in our charity partners

As a member of the ICCM re-cycling of metals scheme, we are able to donate vital funds to local Hospices and other important charities.

Staff and public donations also raise money for local charities and every pound raised is matched by the crematorium.

To date Horizon has donated well over £100,000 to local good causes in Scotland, including the inspirational CHAS – Childrens Hospices Across Scotland, and St Vincent’s Hospice, alongside other local hospices, local cancer care and food banks.
