Park Wood Crematorium

Christmas and Easter memorial services are held each year, in partnership with Churches Together of Elland and District. Dates will be put on here and social media, when decided.

The crematorium chapel has seating facilities for 88 people. There is extra room for standing at the back of the chapel. For larger services, there are also TV monitors available in the foyer. These relay the service that is taking place.
