Cemetery Development Services

Dacorum Borough Council

Working on behalf of Dacorum Borough Council, we are delighted to see the construction of the new cemetery progressing well and on schedule.  From investigating the site for suitability as a cemetery through to building and landscape design, planning and now construction; we have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Council on this exciting project.  We are looking forward to official open day of operation in Spring 2020.

Bedford Cemetery

Following on issues of flooding in the extension area of the Bedford Norse Road Cemetery CDS drainage team headed by Alex Vickers designed a solution to the surface water problem.

CDS were responsible for design and specifications documentation and undertook the tender process on behalf of the client.

The drainage involves a series of laterals and these are interconnected through perpendicular rotary slitting.

Cemetery flooding is a problem and the CDS team of expert engineers will help councils reduce the stress and complaints associated with this perennial problem.

Syston Cemetery

Syston Cemetery was formally opened this month by the local MP Edward Argar.
CDS designed the cemetery and building and have worked closely with the Council to ensure a smooth transition from design, through tender process and on to the formal opening.

First Crematorium in Malta

Following the passing of a Bill by the Maltese Government, Malta will be looking to build its first crematorium in the Country in the very  near future.

Malta has a population of approximately 433,000 those wanting cremation currently have to be flown off the island.  It is anticipated that a new crematorium will attract a significant number of people wishing to opt for an alternative to burial.

CDS are delighted to announce that the Maltese Government have appointed CDS to provide the environmental management and protection policy documents for the operation of the crematorium, and advise on its development.

This will involve the production of air quality and emissions management audits, operational activity schedules and putting together regulatory documentation to help  formalise a Maltese Cremation Act.

CDS are thrilled with the appointment and this award recognises the skills within the CDS team and its partners.
