Welcome to Borders Crematorium 

Set in the heart of the countryside, in the shadow of the Eildon Hills, the crematorium offers a local choice for the communities of the Borders and beyond.

The building and grounds have been carefully designed to ensure that the natural landscape is preserved and the crematorium is amongst the most environmentally friendly in Europe.

Its setting could not be more spectacular, in the lee of the Eildon Hills and within walking distance of Melrose and the River Tweed.

The Garden of Remembrance offers a beautiful, tranquil setting to lay your loved one to rest, and the Borders Crematorium are able to provide families with a range of memorials which are designed and produced to the highest standards.
