Across Hertfordshire there is a wide choice of crematoriums and cemeteries, so choosing the right place to lay your departed loved one to rest can feel like a daunting task. In order to make the process simpler at a time when you may already be feeling overwhelmed, we have collated the information on each crematorium and cemetery in Hertfordshire from Google Maps and put them all on the interactive map below.
If you hover over a pin on the map you will see that we have included the name, address and opening hours of the crematorium or cemetery, so that you can quickly see if it is right for you.
If you would like to use this map yourself, please feel free to get in touch and we will happily supply the embed code.

I can’t thank Memorials of Distinction enough for producing such a beautiful headstone. It was everything and more, that I had asked for. Everyone in the family was very happy and impressed. So thank you again for that miracle.
Lesley, you personally were so kind and understanding throughout the whole process, I’m convinced you may have wings.
