THE CREMATORIUM

The team

Lellet Fields Brand Mark
The staff at Lelley Fields strive to create an environment where everyone is respected and respectful. They understand that arranging and attending funerals is a difficult and emotional time and do everything possible to support, in whatever way they can. The team has extensive experience, so feel free to ask anything without fear of embarrassment.

Christine started her crematorium career in 2000 when she left college. Her grandfather saw an advert in the local paper for a trainee crematorium technician and encouraged Christine to apply. She did – and has been working in the industry ever since.

She recognises the privilege and responsibility of looking after people who have been bereaved and is dedicated to ensuring they have the best possible experience at what can be the worst possible time.

Christine is focussed on making Lelley Fields an asset to the local community, providing education and support around death and bereavement and also around gardening and ecology. Her vision is for Lelley Fields to host events such as pop-up art galleries and be used as a community venue, keeping the doors wide open for everyone.

Lucy left university in 2014, began work as a funeral arranger soon after and hasn’t looked back since. She joined East Riding of Yorkshire Council Cemeteries department in 2020 when Lelley Fields Crematorium was in the initial planning stages, so has been involved since day one.

The honour of caring for someone who has died and ensuring they are given respect and dignity gives Lucy great satisfaction. She is passionate about helping people to feel at ease when talking about the difficult subject of death and does all she can to make Lelley Fields a welcoming environment.

Jane Jackson

CREMATORIUM OFFICER

Jane retired from the Police Service after 29 years in March 2022 and although she loved retirement, she missed being part of a team and helping the public. Having seen the advert for the Crematorium open event she attended not really knowing what to expect.

Having listened to what was being said by Christine and Lucy she recognised how passionate they were about their jobs, and found their enthusiasm catching. Jane believes it is an honour to carry out a person’s last wishes with care and dignity and to help the families in their time of grief.
