Work on Preston Crematorium’s cremators, which has meant the facility has had to close for two weeks, has been completed.
As a result of the completion of the work, the crematorium, which celebrates 50 years of operation in 2012, will be able to hold services again from Monday April 4.
The cremators have been replaced in order to comply with legislation aimed at reducing mercury output and improving efficiency.
There has also been additional improvements with the garden of remembrance bring landscaped and the outside toilets being refurbished.
Chris Hodson, environmental health manager, said: “The crematorium is a service which is really valued by the people of Preston.
“This work was necessary in order to comply with environmental legislation and we now have much greener facilities in time for our 50th year, in Guild year, 2012.”
