A cremation in Wells
Following the passing of a loved one, you may choose, like many others in our city of Wells, a cremation. The local site for this is Mendip Crematorium, although there are also venues further afield in Somerset, such as Haycombe Cemetery & Crematorium in Bath, and Weston-Super-Mare Crematorium.

A typical cremation in Wells unfolds as follows:
  • Procession from your loved one's home, led by the Hearse carrying their coffin
  • Arrival at Mendip Crematorium for the service (some families choose to have the service elsewhere, such as in a church or other place of worship)
  • Service held in the crematorium's multi-faith chapel, usually lasting 30-45 minutes
  • A minister or celebrant presides over the cremation service, which may include hymns, readings and prayers
  • The eulogy is read prior to the committal, where the curtains are drawn across the coffin
  • Mourners leave the crematorium and will sometimes stop outside to view any flowers or offer you their condolences
  • Return to your loved one's home, or another venue in Wells, such as a pub or function room, for the wake.

Jodi was amazing from our very first meeting. She showed empathy and warmth, and she guided us when deciding what we wanted for my fathers funeral. She gave cups of tea which were much appreciated and hugs when they were needed. She kept in contact informing us what was happening, and reminded us of information that was required. We cried, and laughed which lightened the mood, and on the day of the Celebration of my Fathers Life (Funeral) everything was perfect. Thank You.
