Durham Crematorium

Memorial Garden

The garden is a garden for all seasons, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, and this theme has been reflected in the design. The ornamental pond, complete with cast bronze cranes and four gentle fountains, add tranquility to the area. The walled garden is paved and level and offers easy access with car parking close by.
