Venues

These pages are here to help  you select the right venue for the funeral service. We will of course be happy to discuss your requirements with you, however you may find it helpful to review these pictures and their descriptions at your convenience.

Don’t forget that if you are planning a non religious ceremony, and are finding it hard to locate the right venue, you may be already there. Yes you can have a funeral “service” in your house or garden. The only requirement would be that it is big enough to hold the number you invite. Put a Marquee in the garden. Get some caterers in. We will bring the coffin and all your family and other guests can gather to carry the coffin into the Marquee. This could be a very intimate start.

It is modern and comfortable. Everyone has a good view of proceedings. The Catafalque is central and the curtains, should you decide to use them, are just visible in this picture, and close very close to the coffin. This is a good chapel for family members to carry the coffin as there are no steps or low doors to negotiate. Arrangements for music are excellent here as are the staff. We enter via doors at the bottom of the picture and leave through the side doors. The Chapel seats just over 80 mourners plus a small balcony where the picture has been taken from.

There are seats on the left hand side, which are usually for family, along with the front rows on the right. As you can see it is a very comfortable and well maintained environment.

Services can be up to 30 minutes, and it is only £97.00 crematorium fee to increase this to up to one hour. Now this might sound like a long time, but remember you don’t have to use it all. Sometimes it is good to have just a little longer and do it comfortably, rather than rush it, or even worse, not do something you later regret. Talk to me about what you want to do.

This is where we begin. There is reasonable parking here at the Chapel entrance plus further car park along the drive.

The Management at Vinters Park Crematorium were the first to allow us to place pictures on our website for which we are very grateful. Others have since agreed and their pictures will be included as soon as possible.
