The North Northamptonshire Council’s Bereavement Service Care Team at Nene Valley Crematorium have received a top award from the Wellingborough and East Northants Chamber of Commerce for services of ‘excellence’. 

Nene Valley Crematorium is recognised as an inspiring business – ‘To recognise and celebrate a business that has gone above and beyond for its employees, customers and/or community’. Richard Porter, Operations Manager for the crematorium was presented with the award, sponsored by Weatherbys Limited, at an award ceremony in early December at the town’s Golf Club in Great Harrowden.  

The modest team are beyond delighted to receive such a prestigious award and convey heartfelt thanks to the Chamber of Commerce judges for their recognition of the team’s commitment towards responsibilities and the variety of facilities offered at the crematorium. 

To name a few, the award of excellence recognises areas of continuing professional development support for team members and improvements to their working conditions. A variety of enhancements towards customer experience and for all visitors and donations to local charities. 

We are so pleased to receive this award. In no small way our success is due to working together with funeral directors and their ceremony leaders, coupled with the support of the company’s directors. All for the benefit of grieving people that we are honoured to serve and promise to continue with improving the care we endeavour to provide for them. Ensuring much needed meaningful commemoration occurs through arrangement of supplying ceremonies and memorial product is always at the forefront of team member’s mindsTracy Lawrence, Crematorium Manager
