Following a rigorous selection process, three councils have been selected to present their submissions at the upcoming APSE Cemeteries and Crematoria Seminar.
APSE Chief Executive, Mo Baines, said, "This award is to recognise the excellent work that is happening in cemeteries and crematoria across the UK; contributing to the development of new initiatives, and of new working methods in their authority. Each finalist has made a substantial contribution to their service, catching the attention of their colleagues and managers and, most importantly, helping the local communities who use these vital services. Congratulations and good luck to all!"
