Monument Inscriptions - Cremations

Note: The data presented here is deemed to be in the public domain and is intended as an aid to genealogical research by a worldwide audience. It was collected with due reverence to the sanctity of the site. No disrespect is intended to the privacy of the bereaved families.

Most of the cremation memorials in Burton Latimer churchyard are dedicated to loved ones cremated at Kettering Crematorium, although some have been brought here from further afield. The stones date from the mid-late 1980s and are not a comprehensive record: all cremations are recorded in a book kept in the church.  Cremated remains have also been interred in graves containing other family members; they will not be on this list.

The crematorium in Kettering opened on the 24th of April 1940 with the first cremation taking place on the 7th May 1940.

The crematorium itself houses two chapels, the Albert Munn that can seat about 88 and the Edgar Newman that will seat about 52.

As a further aid to finding details of those Burton Latimer residents who have been cremated at Kettering since 1940 or buried at Burton Latimer Cemetery since 1923 it is possible to research using the Deceased Online website, which for the Borough of Kettering is at
