Leicestershire crematorium in running for prestigious award

Great Glen Crematorium could be named the best in the country next month after being named as a finalist in the prestigious 2023 Good Funeral Awards.

It is one of two sites owned and operated by Westerleigh Group to be shortlisted in the coveted Crematorium of the Year category of the awards, which are run by the Association of Green Funeral Directors.

The winners will be announced at a banquet evening in September.

Westerleigh Group is one of the UK’s largest independent owners and operators of crematoria and cemeteries, with 38 sites across England, Scotland and Wales, all set within beautifully-landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, peaceful places for people to visit and reflect.

Great Glen Crematorium was opened in 2017 and has 30 acres of grounds and gardens, thoughtfully designed to blend into the surrounding countryside.

Debbie Smith, CEO of Westerleigh Group, said:

“To be named as finalists for awards which are so highly respected is one of the strongest endorsements we could receive for the exceptional care we strive to provide every day.

We are very proud of our team at Great Glen Crematorium, led by Aleksandra Harris, for securing a place in the finals.

All the colleagues who work at Great Glen Crematorium are passionate about the families they serve in a diverse location of Leicestershire and providing them with the very best care at all times. It is very humbling to see them recognised in this way.

Whatever happens on the awards night, they are already winners to all of us here at Westerleigh Group.

“Ultimately, it is the families we serve who are the winners, because recognition like this reinforces our belief about the quality of our facilities, our services and, of course, our people.”
