Welcoming our newest Approved Partner: The CDS Group!

Welcoming our newest Approved Partner: The CDS Group!

APSE is delighted to welcome The CDS Group (formerly Cemetery Development Services) as the newest member to our Approved Partner scheme.

Speaking about the partnership, The CDS Group Director, Rebecca Ballinger, said, “APSE is at the forefront of delivering excellence in local authority cemetery, crematoria and grounds maintenance services. The opportunity to deepen our relationship with APSE and further embed best practice with the sector was therefore a no-brainer.

“Our extensive experience of cemetery, crematorium and mausoleum feasibility, design and development along with the technical expertise in groundwater risk assessments and drainage management has made The CDS Group one of the leading international brands. We combine creativity with sound technical expertise and with a single point of contact, this experience allows us to manage entire projects from inception to implementation and completion. The CDS Group is very much looking forward to sharing our ideas at the many APSE events across the UK.”

Due to the increasing demand and recognising the continued growth of Cemetery Development Services, the company was rebranded as The CDS Group in November 2019 to offer clients a wider range of services covering Cemeteries and Crematoria, Parks and Leisure, and Environmental Solutions. 

The CDS Group is recognised as a leading international brand in cemetery, crematorium and mausoleum design and development. Over the last 16 years, CDS has undertaken in excess of 400 feasibility studies and designed and built over 40 new cemeteries both in the UK and overseas. As a result of the success and reputation in the cemetery market, CDS has expanded into designing and developing new crematoria sites for both local authorities and private companies; with many new sites currently under construction and many more at various stages of feasibility, design and planning.

APSE Chief Executive Paul O’Brien said, “Having enjoyed a long-standing relationship with The CDS Group, APSE are delighted to have them on board on our Approved Partner scheme. In addition to being market leaders in cemetery design and construction, CDS also specialise in recreational space developments as well as environmental monitoring: contamination sampling, groundwater monitoring and environmental investigations. These specialisms will be of immense value to our members across the UK; specifically, those associated with grounds maintenance. This new partnership will help contribute significantly to the drive for excellence in local authority frontline services.”
