Bereavement Services - burial and cremation

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

From Monday 9 August 2021 the Scottish Government eased restrictions and we can now facilitate 160 seated mourners at cremation services.

A streaming option is now available at our Crematorium so families and friends can watch the funeral service of their loved one.

We provide a dignified, sensitive burial and cremation service.

This includes the management of 54 cemeteries and the crematorium at Sydes Brae, Blantyre, as well as the maintenance of war memorials.

Ceremonies meet all religious and cultural needs with a wide choice of interment and memorial options.

South Lanarkshire Crematorium has induction loops, large print service books and the building is fully accessible.

If you need support following bereavement - with caring for a relative or benefit issues, contact social work for a care assessment or advice from their Money Matters service.

There are also support groups that assist people coping with bereavement:

  • Cruse
  • ff you have been affected by suicide or murder please visit the PETAL website
