An atmosphere of peace and tranquillity prevails in the surroundings of Bournemouth's Crematorium, situated within the grounds of North Cemetery in Strouden Avenue.
How to find Bournemouth Crematorium|
The passing of close relatives or friends is always a time of sorrow and stress, but within the quiet and gracious grounds of the Crematorium, everything has been done to make the occasion as reverent, as consoling and as graceful as possible.
Two chapels, each with its own unique character, are provided. The West Chapel, seating 40 people, allows the smaller, more intimate ceremony involving family and close friends. Beside it are the Chapel of Memory, with it's beautifully bound Books of Remembrance, the Cloisters and the Waiting Room.
For the larger ceremony, the Main East Chapel nearby seats 120 people. Both chapels are equipped with Organs to provide the accompaniment of religious music during the Memorial Service.
Just to the rear of the buildings is the paved Floral Court, in which relatives and friends can view floral tributes, following the service.
Beyond the Crematorium buildings, two beautifully laid out gardens are provided for reverent dispersal of the remains. The Garden of Memory is set out as a rose garden, formal yet quiet and reposeful. For those who choose a more natural environment, the glades provide a woodland atmosphere with sheltering trees and fragrant shrubs, echoing with the song of birds.
