Falkirk Crematorium is located within Camelon Cemetery, Dorrator Road, Camelon.

A major refurbishment of the Crematorium started in late January 2017 with the first part of the works now complete. During these significant works the chapel was closed for services but has now reopened. Work completed during phase 1 includes:

  • Improved access to the building and landscape enhancement
  • A new entrance vestibule at the public entrance
  • Additional seating capacity in the extended chapel
  • Privacy screening to the loggia to allow a more private setting
  • New family room
  • New audio visual system
  • Additional public toilets
  • New roofing, windows and gutters
  • New flooring, heating, wiring, plumbing and decoration throughout
  • Additional car parking

The second phase of the planned works got underway in July with the phased replacement of the cremators. This work is scheduled to take place mainly at the weekends. There will be no cremations at the weekend and occasional Fridays.
