Welcome to Glasgow Crematorium

Glasgow Crematorium was opened in 1895 and is the first crematorium to be built in Scotland.

Whilst the building is of architectural historic importance, the cremation service we provide is at one traditional and contemporary.

Staff are well trained, experienced and caring people and our crematory equipment is environmentally aware.

The charge for an adult cremation service is £640 but no charge is made in the case of a child from birth - 18 years inclusive. The duration of our services is 45 minutes, although an additional time slot can be reserved for an additional cost. The Old Chapel seats 150 and the small chapel caters for a more intimate gathering of 50.

We recognise that bereavement is a most distressing time and sometimes people simply need to speak to someone to be reassured that the service they want, is the service they receive. Further information can be found on our website but should bereaved families prefer to speak directly with one of our experienced staff they should feel free to do so. The crematorium staff are here to assist and support bereaved families with their service needs.
