Planned improvements for the Crematorium
The key improvements planned for the main building include:
a flexible chapel for small and large services, able to accommodate up to 150 to 200 mourners
an improved experience within the chapel, with landscape views, better natural lighting, better acoustics, seats instead of pews and a comforting environment
an enlarged waiting room
more covered outdoor waiting areas and overflow space, separate toilets for men and women
improved pedestrian and vehicular flow around the site, eliminating cross-over in services
a larger car park (120 spaces) and access roads. This will double the capacity of the current permanent car park
expanded Gardens of Remembrance with more choice of memorials
an improved Book of Remembrance Room and Flower Room with a new Remembrance courtyard
better facilities for the bereaved who are visiting the site and making funeral and memorial arrangements
better staff facilities to support the services on site
an energy-efﬁcient building
improved facilities, offering a calm, reassuring environment
improved and widened access to the site to allow for traffic flow in and out of the site.
