South Leicestershire Memorial Park & Crematorium is part of Memoria, a group established in 2003 and operating 8 sites across the UK. Our mission is to provide exceptional standards of service and facility to bereaved families. Our directors have a combined 87 years of experience which they have poured into this mission, opening immaculate facilities in beautiful and tranquil surroundings. Alongside South Leicestershire, near Countesthorpe, we also operate sites at Kirkleatham near Redcar, Cardiff, Abingdon, Amber Valley, Waveney, Saint Asaph and Hitchin. Our sites are modern with all being opened since 2011. We opened South Leicestershire Memorial Park in 2015. The crematorium is located a short drive to the south of Leicester at Countesthorpe. We have ample parking available at the park, which is surrounded by beautiful grounds. Our goal in designing the park was to provide a calm and serene location to hold a meaningful service. Although we are not a funeral director, we are able to help you arrange a cremation funeral for your loved one. We will provide all the services a funeral director would, we just do not call ourselves funeral directors. Additionally, if you choose to use one of our crematoria we can ensure you receive a fully personalised service in our beautiful grounds with a full, one-hour time slot. All our chapels are built to hold 100 guests seating with up to 400 if you choose standing. We are fully equipped with modern facilities including disabled access and hearing loops, music system or organs and plasma TV for photo dedications. What’s more, we are able to offer live-streaming facilities for those who were unable to attend the service in person. We own our facilities, which is why we can guarantee standards at the same time as keeping a lid on any unnecessary costs. We have no hidden charges but will of course work with you to add anything extra in terms of personalisation that you require. Alongside our full funeral service, we are also able to offer direct cremation. This is quite simply a cremation with no service for guests to attend. It is a simple option that keeps all costs down and leaves you free to decide how you would like to remember somebody. We take our responsibility seriously, as we know how important a funeral can be as an act of remembrance. All our team are well-trained and compassionate and will help you arrange the funeral as you require. We cannot take away pain but we can do our bit to honour your wishes.
