I attended a funeral at the new Melrose crematorium last week.

I was most impressed. The interior is beautiful – very simple with the stone wall and large wooden cross.

Outside, a lot of hard work has gone into the landscaping and grounds, and the willow planting is particularly effective. I would congratulate all concerned.

It is beautifully-designed and the building nestles happily on its site at the foot of the Eildons.
