Penmount Crematorium is a publicly owned, self financed facility administered by Cornwall Council. It is ideally situated two miles from the city centre of Truro. It is sited on a secluded country estate of twenty-eight acres. Eleven of those acres have been developed as Gardens of Remembrance.
Books of Remembrance update
Due to Covid restrictions the Book of Remembrance Room at Penmount is ccurrently closed.
It has not been possible to re-open it due to ongoing restrictions and the confined nature of this room. We have therefore made different arrangements so that the books can be viewed again. They are now displayed in the three bay windows at the front of the main building. The baby book is on display in the adjacent window which was the Book of Remembrance room.
The electronic book of remembrance will be relocated as soon as is practicable. It will then be available to view again. When this happens we will again place information on the website and on Penmount’s Facebook page.
In the interim you can access the book online.
Latest Update: 23rd April 2020
Central Government Amended COVID 19 Regulations
Please note that for the foreseeable future the grounds have re-opened for visitors. However, the crematorium buildings are only available for funeral services.
This means that the Flower Room and Book of Remembrance Room are not open. The toilets are restricted for the use of those attending funeral services.
Please respect these restrictions and social distancing for the good of our community.
