Funeral services

Our Classic service is 35 minutes long with five minutes for entry and an additional five minutes to exit the chapel in to the Reflection Garden where you can view the flowers and have a brief conversation with friends and family before moving on to the wake.  We have introduced a service called Sunrise to help with funeral poverty, which is an intimate service of up to 10 minutes.

Each service can be followed by a cremation or a burial at either our Cheltenham or Charlton Kings cemetery. Alternatively, the funeral service may take place at a separate place of worship followed by a brief committal ceremony in one of our chapels prior to the cremation or direct to graveside for a burial.
