Coronavirus (COVID-19): change to service

On advice from the government regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have closed our cemeteries to the public and introduced a temporary reduction to cremation and burial fees. 

See further information about changes to services.

A choice of chapels

We have two chapels so you can choose the right setting for the ceremony.

The West Chapel seats up to 40 people and is ideal for an intimate service of close family and friends. You can book a service at quarter to or past the hour from 8.45am to 3.45pm Monday to Friday.

The East Chapel seats up to 100 people and has an organ for live music during a larger memorial service. You can arrange a service at this chapel on the hour or half past the hour from 9am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday.

Both chapels are fitted with quality sound systems and offer a wide choice of recorded music to accompany the service.

Beside the chapels there is a Floral Court where mourners can view floral tributes after the service. There is also a comfortable waiting room.
