There is a comfortably appointed chapel of rest in which you and your family can spend time with your loved one, should you wish.

Pickard & Beale were very caring and Pat listened very attentively to our needs. Stuart was very professional and made me feel very comfortable with the proceedings at the crematorium. Funerals can be very sad but with the service given by the team we had a very sad but happy day.
