Travelling to the Crematorium

One of the key reasons for choosing this site is its excellent connections to Doncaster and Conisbrough, as well as to Rotherham and Barnsley.  In short, the crematorium is where it is most needed and so would mean greatly reduced journey times for local people attending funerals.

The site is also next to existing bus stops on Doncaster Road, with two services running to Doncaster, Rotherham and Mexborough, both stopping every half hour on weekdays.

Crematoria generate very low levels of traffic and our visitors tend to arrive outside the normal morning and evening peak periods.  As a result, we do not envisage any significant impact on the local road network.  From our consultation with the public we know there is concern about traffic speeds on this section of the road. We have suggested to Doncaster Council that if our application is successful we would pay for the whole of the section of the A630 between Conisbrough and Warmsworth to be a 40mph limit and we would introduce gateways like this one to indicate when cars are entering the built up area.

The Environment

The crematorium will use the latest and best quality cremation equipment so that we can ensure the lowest possible emissions.  The system we use is a world leader.   It is one of the most expensive on the market and is built in the UK, in Manchester.   Much of the cremator room area will be filled with an abatement system that will strip out pollutants including mercury.

Crematoria are not noisy, and we will be careful about light pollution. Our lighting will be low level and kept to a minimum.  There will be no lighting on site outside working hours.
