Dieren Crematorium, part of ‘the Facultatieve Group’, organised its first public participation evening on 17 February 2016, so that anyone who was interested was able to come to the Crematorium without having to make an appointment. There was a lot of interest and visitors were positive about this new initiative.
Dieren Crematorium had organised this event in order to answer the questions that are important to people. “I wanted to know if Dieren had the music I would like to have played at my own funeral. I had a look with one of their members of staff and it turns out they do have it. So that’s one concern less for me. I’m so happy with this”, says one of the visitors. This type of evening is very important to another lady: “I wanted to view the auditorium without being disturbed and take some pictures. I want to show them to my husband, who’s seriously ill. It’s extremely sad, but I’m glad we can organise his goodbye like this. And this is something you want to do in a personal consultation and when it’s quiet, like tonight.”
