Crematorium information

Dignity operates Enfield Crematorium in partnership with Haringey Council.

Enfield Crematorium was opened in 1938 and is one of London's largest. The crematorium has two chapels, north and south, which can both hold approximately 150 people. The grounds cover approximately 50 acres, most of which is dedicated to the Gardens of Remembrance.

We are here to help you with whatever you would like for the funeral service. Our dedicated and caring staff treat every family with dignity and respect. At the service we will be there to help you every step of the way.

Our chapel can accommodate larger funerals and is multi-faith. We can help you arrange the service according to your cultural and religious needs. We aim to provide the highest possible standards of care in all aspects of our service.

The crematorium also has access for the disabled, disabled toilets, a hearing loop and has a speaker system throughout the building so no part of a service is missed.

The gardens provide a tranquil and comforting environment for quiet contemplation and there are a number of bench seats to allow visitors a chance to sit in peaceful surroundings and remember their loved ones.

By Rail

British Rail has a train station very close to the Crematorium in Turkey Street. The train runs from Liverpool Street to Cheshunt - twice an hour. The timetable is changing at the beginning of October, please telephone Liverpool Street station to obtain times. Approximately 35 minutes from Liverpool Street to Turkey Street.

When you come out of Turkey Street station you can either;

Turn right, walk up the road to the Great Cambridge Road, turn left and the entrance is approximately 200 yards along.

Or

Turn left, approximately 20 yards on the right hand side, Winnington Road, go along Winnington Road and then on the right hand side approximately 50 yards, between a small block of flats and the start of the houses, a small roadway, almost like a back alley, you can see the train bridge, go under the bridge and you follow the roadway round to the chapels.

Either way, it's a slow 10-15 minute walk.

By Underground

The easiest tube station is Seven Sisters on the Victoria Line. At Seven Sisters change onto British Rail to the Turkey Street Station.

We know that understanding what goes into the cost of a funeral can sometimes be difficult for families. We also recognise that understanding the overall financial implications of arranging a funeral is important. To this end we have included a downloadable price list of the services available to you.

It is important to us that any confusion is completely removed to help families to fully understand what the Cremation Fee includes, and what this means as part of the wider cost of the funeral. We have outlined the elements that are necessary to provide a cremation service to you below, although of course we would be happy to discuss any further queries you might have directly with you. You can contact us at any time to talk through any further options and any fees that might apply.
