Distington Hall Crematorium

Distington Hall Crematorium is set in very pleasant surroundings in the north of the borough and serves the majority of Copeland and most of the south of Allerdale. 


A range of dignified service options are available at Distington Hall Crematorium. Please contact us or your funeral director for full details.

There is also the option for an audio-visual display of special memories to be displayed on the crematorium's screens.

Chapel of Remembrance

Our Chapel of Remembrance is located in the grounds and close to the main crematorium building. 

Bereaved families can leave a lasting record and dignified memorial to their departed loved ones by having an entry inscribed in the Book of Remembrance, which is displayed in the chapel. Vases are also provided in the chapel to enable floral tributes to be left. Please unwrap flowers and leave the wrapping at the recycling point.

The Book of Remembrance or a copy of the appropriate page is available so that the inscription may be seen on every anniversary of the date of death. The actual Book of Remembrance is not available to view at weekends or bank holidays. However there is an alternative, electronic version of the book that can be viewed during this time. 

Familes are also able to purchase a plaque for the memorial wall on the outside of the Chapel of Remembrance. An application form is available.

The opening times for the Chapel of Remembrance are 9am to 4pm. Our staff will gladly assist anyone who wishes to view a Book or Remembrance inscription on a date other than the anniversary.
