About us

At Dunham Lawn we have been supporting people in saying goodbye to their loved ones since 1959. We are a multi-faith crematorium and cemetery, with a reputation for compassionate care - built up over our 60 years’ worth of experience. We work closely with each and every individual to tailor our services to your specific requirements, promoting our values of reliability, discretion, and flexibility.

We strive to build upon these values and support you through every step of the process. We always aim to treat your pet with the respect and dignity they deserve, and be flexible in our approach in order to accommodate your individual wishes.

Our Staff

Emily - Pet Crematorium Officer

Emily is the first face you will see at our Pet Crematorium. She will walk you through every step of the process, answer any questions you may have, and take good care of your pet from the moment they arrive with us until they are safely returned to you. 

She has always had pets and has worked with a whole range of animals including cats, dogs, guinea-pigs, rats, fish, lizards, goats, sheep, and horses - to name but a few! She currently has two cats, Sephy and Mica, who she spoils rotten.

Dave - Bereavement Services Manager

Our Bereavement Services manager Dave knows everything there is to know about our services here at Altrincham Crematorium & Dunham Lawn Cemetery. He and his cat are still vying for the title of the boss.

Administration Staff

Our friendly administration team are always on hand to help with any questions. If they don’t know the answer, they will know who does!
