Crematorium opens in Douglas Shire
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.
