Services have resumed at Aberdeen Crematorium after a major refurbishment.
Aberdeen City Council spent around £1 million on the revamp of the Hazlehead site, which included replacing the existing entrance and reception area, new disabled toilets, a new digital media system and a complete redecoration of both chapels.
There is also a new area for the book of remembrance, as well as new flooring and seating in both chapels.
The chapel closed in May, with work scheduled to be completed in October, but work was extended due to ground conditions out of the city council’s control.
Councillor John Wheeler said: “The improvements have made a huge difference to the reception areas and both chapels, ensuring we have up-to-date facilities. This has been an important project and it has been completed with care and attention to detail.
“We would like to thank people for their patience in using other venues while the work has taken place and we would also like to thank other local churches and crematoria for their help during the refurbishments.”
Alternative arrangements have been in place for several months to accommodate the works.
