It is customary for UK crematoria to sensitively recycle the metal residues that remain at the end of the cremation process, and to direct any resulting revenue to good causes.

Zoe McMillan, crematorium manager said: “We are delighted to support charities that make a difference.  These organisations do fantastic work, touching lives across Andover and the wider area.”
