Duxbury: Town celebrates 2nd week of new crematorium

Duxbury officials are thanking the public for approving a $2.6 million debt exclusion override several years ago, which led to the completion of the new state of the art crematory that opened last week.

Superintendent Patricia Pappas of the Duxbury Crematory says the facility, located at the rear of the Mayflower cemetery, which houses the busiest crematory in the state, has received rave reviews.

One of the most interesting parts of the new crematorium located in the rear of the Mayflower cemetery is the viewing room, which overlooks the retorts inside the crematory that reduces the remains of those being cremated.

Pappas says the crematorium, which does more than 3,000 cremations a year, moved in officially on July 9th.
