Weeley Crematorium was first opened for funerals on 2nd January 1986 and was officially opened in March 1986. The Crematorium is operated by Tendring District Council and is part of the Council’s Leisure Services.Tendring District Council also tend cemeteries at Clacton-on Sea, Kirby Cross, Dovercourt and Walton-on-the-Naze and the burial registers for those cemeteries are housed at Weeley Crematorium from where the cemeteries are administered.

Under the Public Health Act 1984 the Local Authority can make arrangements for the burial or cremation of a person who has no family or other person who can undertake such arrangements.

When the Local Authority make arrangements they become responsible for the persons estate. Any possessions may be disposed of in order to raise monies to cover the costs incurred by the cremation or burial.

Tendring District Council has a nominated funeral director. If any person other than this funeral director is asked to make arrangements, the Council cannot be responsible for any costs incurred up to that point.
