Services in the crematorium chapel are available every half hour between 9am and 5pm. We request that the chapel is cleared in 25 minutes, so that it is ready in time for the next service.

It can take at least three days to complete these arrangements. If a death needs to be reported to the coroner or occurs over a bank holiday you may need more time. Please make sure you allow for this time when booking a service.

The crematorium is open between 9:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday, both Saturday and Sunday by special request (please note there is an extra charge for weekend services).
