Our Chapel provides a non-denominational setting for pre-booked cremation and burial services.
It is designed to seat 240 people and has inside standing room for an additional 40 people, with a portable microphone and external speakers to assist in catering for large gatherings.
An audio visual system, including screen and projector, provide basic facilities for playing presentations and recording services. We recommend testing presentations prior to service. Contact the cemetery office to check when the Chapel is available for the testing.
By prior arrangement the service can be recorded. (See Fees and Charges for costs of recordings).
A modern piano/organ is available for use by the family at no extra cost.
If you wish to use these facilities and services please discuss them with your funeral director or call the staff at our administration office.
The Lounge is situated at the rear of the crematorium building and is suitable for a family committal or small funeral service as it accommodates approximately 20 to 30 people.
The casket can be placed in the main room for the service or the smaller side room. This smaller room has doors to close off from the main area and can provide a sense of closure following the farewell.
As the Lounge opens onto a sheltered courtyard, an outdoor service is an option.
There is a television in the Lounge to play DVDs and photoshows, however the services cannot be recorded.
Please see Crematorium Services for booking times and service descriptions for both the Chapel and Lounge.
