The first purpose built multi-faith crematorium in the UAE opened in Al Ain on Thursday. The new facility is not limited by visa restrictions and the service will be available to residents of all non-Muslim faiths in all emirates.
The crematorium is audited for quality assurance purposes and will be operated according to the highest European standards and practices in accordance with the ICCM (Institute of Crematorium and Cemetery Management). Lurista LLC an Abu Dhabi-based management consultancy will manage the facility on behalf of the Al Ain Municipality. Lurista has created a new division to provide funeral services which will partner with the Westerleigh Group, a developer and operator of crematoria in the UK to ensure the delivery of the finest quality of service.
