Cre­ma­to­rium opens in Dou­glas Shire

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

DOU­GLAS shire res­i­dents no longer need to travel to Cairns for cre­ma­tions now that Moss­man and Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Funer­als has in­stalled a cre­ma­tor in its Moss­man premises.

The re­gion’s first cre­ma­tor is now in op­er­a­tion at their Sawmill Road premises and Com­mu­nity Funer­als Direc­tors Paul Ras­mussen and Stephen Oldham say the move will greatly re­duce the dis­tances that peo­ple travel to have a cre­ma­tion.

“Our lo­cal cre­ma­tor will mean lo­cal res­i­dents can be re­as­sured that their loved ones can be cre­mated lo­cally by peo­ple who they know and trust,” said Mr Ras­mussen.

Moss­man and Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Funer­als are com­mit­ted to in­vest­ing in Aus­tralia. Mr Ras­mussen ex­plained they car­ried out ex­ten­sive re­search be­fore choos­ing a modern Aus­tralian-de­signed and man­u­fac­tured cre­ma­tor that meets all en­vi­ron­men­tal stan­dards.

All cre­ma­tions by Moss­man and Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Funer­als will be now be done lo­cally.
