Rainsbrook Crematorium has donated £3,334 to the Alzheimer’s Society of Warwickshire.

The donation comes from the proceeds of recycling metal and orthopaedic implants following cremation.

Rainsbrook joined the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management’s national Recycling of Metals scheme when it opened in April 2014.

The crematorium asks all bereaved families to consider donating the metal to the scheme - but only sends it for recycling with the blessing of the next of kin.

Cllr Sally Bragg, responsible for sustainable environment at Rugby Borough Council, said: “Without these kind donations the metal cannot be recycled.

“We appreciate it’s an extremely sensitive subject but hope the bereaved relatives can take some comfort from knowing the money raised has helped a good cause.”

Marc Shaw, from the Alzheimer’s Society, said: “We are pleased that families using Rainsbrook Crematorium have decided to support local charities in this way and we are grateful for the kind donation.

“The money will be used for the Alzheimer’s Society to continue its support for the patients and families in our care.”
