Welcome to Memoria Ltd – a company dedicated to distinguished service in beautiful settings.

Memoria was incorporated in 2003 by three directors with over 90 years collective experience in the funeral sector. The Chief Executive Officer, the award winning entrepreneur and funeral director, Howard Hodgson (see CV), is renowned as the UK’s most innovative provider of funeral and related services for over 40 years. Therefore, unsurprisingly, Memoria has developed, over the last decade, to become the leading crematorium operator and a by-word for excellence in the provision of standards of service and facility. Memoria has received more planning consents than any other crematoria operator since the millennium. Memoria has successfully completed crematoria in Ollerton, Bury, Chorley, Bishop Auckland and Braintree.

In recent times, Memoria has opened Cardiff & Glamorgan Memorial Park & Crematorium in 2011; Kirkleatham Memorial Park & Crematorium in 2014; and South Oxfordshire Crematorium & Memorial Park, Amber Valley Memorial Park & Crematorium, South Leicestershire Memorial Park & Crematorium, Waveney Memorial Park & Crematorium in 2015 and Denbighshire Memorial Park & Crematorium in 2016, North Hertfordshire Memorial Park and Crematorium in 2017, Flintshire Memorial Park and Crematorium in 2018. We opened Barnby Moor Memorial Park and Crematorium in 2019. Further sites are at various states of planning.
