APSE Cemeteries and Crematoria Seminar 2017

APSE Cemeteries and Crematoria Seminar 2017

APSE is pleased to announce the holding of its annual Cemeteries and Crematoria Seminar which is taking place on the 20th April 2017 at  the Hinckley Island Hotel, Watling St, Burbage, Hinckley LE10 3JA Leicestershire.

The seminar will look at how despite these austere times services are still being improved. We will look at :

  • The key issues for today’s Bereavement Services and what the future may hold.
  • Why  the Burial and Cremation (Scotland) Act  has been reviewed and revised and the improvements this will bring
  • How service managers are balancing the requirement to develop income generation against the need to ensure the vulnerability of the bereaved is not exploited.
  • How local authorities are dealing with funeral poverty and developing affordable and sensitively delivered funeral services.
  • The difficulties and solutions to developing new cemetery grounds.
  • How the local authorities are changing the approach to service delivery to ensure improvements can be delivered and customer needs met.
  • Cemetery provision and planning – how to manage the potential for the possible pollution of air, land and ground waters
  • The art and hidden messages contained within our cemetery memorials
  • Developing the APSE Bereavement Services Customer Survey – an interactional experience! 


APSE welcomes delegates to the event from across England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland and it is our hope that you will be able to attend and participate in what will be a highly interesting and informative conference.
