Community Focused

At Baldarroch Chapel and Crematorium we are fully committed to supporting the local community in any way we can.   This ranges from:

  • Using locals business wherever possible, be that in the construction of the building to the ongoing day to day support needed to make the Baldarroch the success it is today.
    • During the construction phase:
      • WCP architects in Aberdeen designed the building.
      • Bancon from Banchory were the main building contractor.
    • Ongoing business associates:
      • Robertson Memorials of Aberdeen provide all of the granite memorials.
      • Rosies Florist in Banchory provide the beautiful flowers which are on display each week in the chapel.
      • Roy Cowie of Banchory looks after on site grounds maintenance.
      • Raemoir Garden Centre in Banchory planted the alpine garden and provide all of the potted plants which a scattered around the grounds.
      • Atmosphere Lighting and Sound from Aberdeen installed and maintain the audio and visual equipment in the chapel.
  • Donating money to local charities from the sale of recycled metals (more details of which can be found here).
  • Baldarroch’s Public Access Defibrillator

    The provision of a Public Access Defibrillator.  The cabinet containing the defibrillator is located externally under the canopy on the right hand side of the building. Access to the cabinet can be only be gained via the staff at Baldarroch or during periods of closure by ringing the emergency services on 999 who will then pass on the cabinet door combination. Hopefully you will never need to use it but it is nice to know it is there in times of emergency.
