Crematorium update

You must wear a face covering if you are attending a service at the crematorium, unless you have a valid exemption. This is a legal requirement.  

The Gardens of Remembrance are open on weekdays and weekends. The Book of Remembrance Room and Flower Room are open to use by one family or one bubble at a time. The bereavement services office is closed to the public. Please use our online enquiry form if you have a question about our services or call the office on 01483 444711.

To protect the safety and wellbeing of those bereaved, our teams and funeral director colleagues, we are closely following government guidelines and the Coronavirus Act 2020.

Gardens of Remembrance

The Gardens of Remembrance are open to the public on weekdays and at weekends.

Book of Remembrance Room and Flower Room

The Book of Remembrance Room and Flower Room are open for families to visit but please note that only people from one family or bubble should be in the rooms at any one time.

The digital Book of Remembrance is not available and staff cannot change the pages of the book to show other dates. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Number of mourners

The maximum number of mourners allowed to attend a funeral service is 40 (babies aged 12 months and under are not counted as part of the 40). It is not possible for additional people to wait outside of the chapel while the service takes place.


For those who cannot attend a service, we are able to offer webcasting services at a reduced cost, so that family and friends can be part of the service without leaving their home. Please contact your funeral director to arrange webcasting and for latest updates on the guidance.

Office and facilities

  • The bereavement services office is currently closed and is only able to deal with enquiries by phone relating to an immediate cremation or burial. The crematorium office is shut on Saturdays. If you need to contact us, please use our online enquiry form.
  • We are keeping all funeral directors up to date with these changes, so please contact your funeral director if you have any questions.


Please read the updated cremation guidance for applicants. It describes how to organise a cremation, including how to apply for a cremation, declare your wishes regarding ashes, right to inspect medical certificates and declare fitted implants.
