​Bretby Crematorium

You’ll find us in the heart of a natural woodland setting, just off the A511 Leicester to Burton-upon-Trent route between Burton and Swadlincote in Staffordshire. Our grounds offer a peaceful haven for quiet contemplation and remembrance. 

Families take comfort by spending time here, as it's a beautiful setting for the funeral service, and as a place to remember their special person. When you want to escape your surroundings and take a moment of quiet time, it's a privilege for us to provide you with that space to think, reflect and remember the times you spent with your loved ones. 

Our two service rooms are in the heart of the grounds which you can visit all year round. Each service room is designed to be calming and comfortable, and you can personalise it to reflect the life, the loves and the story of the person who’s died. There’s colour change lighting so we can make it exactly how you want it, pink, red, orange or even colour change. Some of our families choose their person’s favourite colours, and others choose the colour of their favourite football team. You can also use our sideboards to display your favourite photos or extra flowers. 

If you have people that can’t make the service, we can arrange a webcast so they can watch online. We can save it as a recording for you to keep, if you’d like. 

Bretby – an ethical choice

With co-op values at our heart, it’s our desire to be progressive, inclusive, and sustainable. We work hard to keep our woodland as a perfect habitat for the local wildlife, we’ve lowered our carbon emissions by 76% since 2010 and share our profits with the local community. The Bretby woodland offers visitors a chance to feel connected to nature and appreciate the circle of life in natural, calm surroundings. It’s why visits to our grounds mean so much to those visiting us.

Our grounds are open from 9am – 5pm during autumn and winter and 9am – 8pm during spring and summer.
