A service of dedication led by the Rt Rev Jonathan Meyrick, The Bishop of Lynn, will be held as part of Cromer crematorium's official opening ceremony on Tuesday, October 3.

A number of other religious and secular leaders will participate in the service, just off Holt Road, and Cromer deputy mayor David Pritchard will also contribute.

More than 80 guests are expected to attend and music will be provided by organist Matthew Bond and soprano Meg Starling.

The contract to build the new crematorium was awarded in 2011 and the first funeral took place at the new site in January.

Richard Evans, managing director of Bristol-based developer, Westerleigh Group, said: 'It seems a long time ago since we started to plan this important community service but we hope you will agree the ultimate facilities are a great asset to the area. Most importantly, we have retained the natural setting of the site.'
