The way we say goodbye has a significant impact on our ability to move on and live with grief. In our carefully designed building, with its relaxed setting and stunning views from the floor to ceiling panoramic window from our Ceremony Hall – we know that we can give you the time you need to reflect and remember in a quiet and befitting way.
Information for Families
The Hurlet crematorium hosts 5 separate carparks which can accommodate 120 cars with additional space for 30 vehicles along our internal access road.
In addition, our easily accessible disabled car park has 8 parking spaces with room on either side to allow any required mobility equipment to be used as necessary.
We encourage families not to arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before the service begins to avoid congestion with the carparking.
On arrival family and friends can gather in our modern, comfortable, and quiet waiting room.
Our webcasting system is fully automated, and an increasingly popular option for those who cannot attend the service in person. This can be made available to view on-line for 7 days following the date of the service.
Large screens allow you to show photographs and videos of your life together, your funeral director will guide you through the options.
Whilst many are happy to use a funeral as closure, others wish to keep a recording of the service. Your service can be recorded to keep as a download link via email, on DVD, or USB stick.
We can source any music that has been made commercially available for your ceremony and play it through a state-of-the-art media system. Just let your funeral director know your choices.
When you lose someone, who is central to your life, it is only fitting they should rest front and centre of the Ceremony Hall when you meet to celebrate their life.
The ceremony hall seats 150 guests and has a large picture window wall framing views across the Hurlet Hills. A further 80 people can follow the service on screens in our indoor waiting area.
There are toilets in the waiting area, including a disabled toilet.
We understand how difficult families find it as the curtain closes. You will see something very different at The Hurlet Crematorium. Our delicate voiles gently wrap around the coffin, no doors, no noise. If you still choose not to do this, that’s fine, we understand.
Your flowers will be displayed in our floral display area adjacent to the building. We will care for them for a week, but we invite you to collect them if you want to enjoy them elsewhere.
We allow a full hour between services giving you plenty of time to gather, hold an appropriate ceremony and say your goodbyes before departing. There is no feeling of hurry and fluster. If you want, further time can be allocated.
