Staff efforts to help the bereaved have been recognised. 

Workers at Weymouth Crematorium have been presented with two awards by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management.

Kate Wheller, Community Facilities Briefholder at Weymouth & Portland Borough Council, said: “I am delighted the hard work of staff has been recognised. It is good to have the high quality of the service we offer celebrated.”
