The fire broke out in the roof of the building just after 12:30pm on 31st December. Emergency crews used an aerial platform to fight the blaze. No one was inside the building at the time of the fire.

An investigation is underway into the cause of the blaze.

All services planned for today (Thursday January 2nd) and Friday have been rearranged.

There is only one other crematorium in the city, at Weston Mill. This will provide more services until repairs are finished at Efford.
