Ever fancy a behind-the-scenes tour of a crematorium? Well, this new crematorium in East Yorkshire is opening its doors to the public for a look behind the curtain.
You’ll be able to look inside and ask any questions about the new £9.6 million facility that can be found in Holderness. Lelley Fields Crematorium is brand-new and apparently nowhere will be ‘off limits.
If you’d like to have a nosey, Lelley Fields Crematorium, which opened back in February and is the first to be built in the region for 25 years will be open to the public on the 22nd April.
The venue will be open between 9am and 12pm to visitors who can check out the brand-spanking new crematorium. Staff will be on hand to answer questions from the public as well.
This is a unique opportunity with the last privately owned crematorium opening back in 1998. Manager Christine Walker-Kelly said the public will be able to ask questions about he cremation process on the new £9.6m site.

The manager added: “No questions will be off-limits”.
Ms Walker-Kelley said: “I am very much looking forward to meeting local people and showing them around our brand new crematorium in the heart of Holderness.
“People will have the opportunity to see areas that they wouldn’t usually have access to while staff will be on hand to answer questions about the new facilities or the cremation process.”
If you’d like to tour the facilities without visiting, you can head over to their website and have a virtual tour here.
