Woodlands Crematorium

We operate Woodlands Crematorium which was opened in 1961. The crematorium carries out approximately 1200 cremations a year and offers a range of services. 
A chapel for services is provided and the grounds are laid out as a garden of remembrance.

The Book of Remembrance Chapel is open daily between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm

Service times are held between 9:20am – 2:40pm Monday to Friday and are every 40 minutes.  

Parking

We have limited parking on site, but there is unrestricted on-street parking outside the grounds.  

Memorials

There are various memorials available at the crematorium as a lasting tribute; these include the book of remembrance, memorial cards, rose bed, tree or stone kerb with bronze plaque, bench plaque, wall plaque with posy vase, single rose with aluminium plaque or marble edging stone with black granite tablet.

Book of remembrance

The Book of Remembrance provides a beautiful and lasting memorial to those who have been cremated at Woodlands crematorium. The book consists of eight volumes, each volume displayed in the remembrance chapel. The pages are turned daily to reflect the current date, so that a lasting record appears at each anniversary date according to the date chosen. The date under which the entry appears is normally the date of death. However, any date may be chosen like a birthday or wedding anniversary.

Each inscription can consist of up to eight lines, with the minimum being a two line entry. Inscriptions can be decorated by a floral motif, badges or coat of arms, for example a coat of arms, military, club or society badge.  If you would like a special motif, please include a detailed drawing or photo the studio can work from. Please talk through the choices available with the crematorium staff.

You can view the book of remembrance online.

Memorial cards

Everyone arranging an entry in the book of remembrance will receive a complimentary memorial card bearing the same inscription.  It is regretted that this cannot include any requested motif unless an additional fee is included.  Additional cards can be ordered for friends and relatives. 

Music and media

Your own choice of music can often play an important part in a funeral. We offer a digitised music system which enriches the quality of the services offered to the bereaved.

Requests need to be made at least 48 hours (but ideally 72 hours) before the date of the service,

Baby garden

There is a recognised garden dedicated to the memory of our babies, where parents, relatives and friends may enjoy tranquil surroundings to remember their loved ones.
