The Thornalley family of Thornalley Funeral Services Ltd in King’s Lynn, Norfolk is investing in a new crematorium at Breckland. thornalley Crematorium small

After much consideration and research, the family is very pleased that Breckland Council Planning Committee unanimously voted in favour for the crematorium to be built on the edge of the village of Scoulton in the heart of Breckland, Norfolk.

There has been overwhelming support from local independent funeral directors, ministers and local people.  Currently bereaved families have to travel to crematoria in Norwich, Bury St Edmunds or King’s Lynn. Although the Thornally family will own and manage the new crematorium, it will predominantly serve the local towns and villages in and around Breckland.  The crematorium is hoped to be completed by the end of 2016.
