CREMATORIUM (12 Shafirovsky Avenue) opened in 1973 (architect A.S. Konstantinov, D.S. Goldgor, N.M. Zaharyina). The crematorium complex consists of nine ritual halls, ten cremators, and a columbarium of 5,000 square metres. In St. Petersburg the first attempts to cremate dead bodies were undertaken in 1918-19 in the stoves of former baths at Kamskaya St. In 1920, an architectural contest took place for designing a crematorium to be located on the territory of destroyed Mitropolichy Garden of Alexander Nevsky Lavra. Architects N.A. Trotsky, A.S. Serafimov and others participated in the contest, but none of the projects was implemented. During the Siege of 1941-44, victims of hunger, artillery bombardment and bombing raids were cremated in the stoves of the brick works (located on the territory of the present-day Moskovsky Victory Park).
