Since December 2018 our unattended direct cremations take place at our very own state-of-the-art facility. This means that the same team of people looks after your loved one from the moment they are brought into our care to the hand delivery or scattering of the ashes.

NEW: We can now offer attended committals at this beautiful crematorium at a time to suit you, including evenings and weekends…for the same price as a 9am committals at the other venues that we use. It’s just £200 for up to 12 people to be present for a 30-minute goodbye, usually held in the Oak Room.
Charlton Park Crematorium is also open to local funeral directors for traditional funerals and Memorial Services.
If you are an independent funeral director interested in reducing the overall cost of funerals for families in your area, see how we can help you.
Our many years' experience of caring for the bereaved has informed our approach and working methods. We are committed to giving each family total peace of mind and eliminating any secret anxiety about the care your loved one receives, the identity of the ashes that are returned and our impact on the planet.
Every step of your loved one's journey is carefully recorded via a unique identifying code that allows us to record the time and staff member overseeing each transition - from arrival at Charlton Park to scattering or return of the ashes.
We have also adopted a simple but lovely idea from Europe - a ceramic token bearing the individual cremation number is placed on top of the coffin before it enters the cremation chamber. This token stays with your loved one after the cremation is complete and is visibly incorporated into the final presentation of the ashes in our modern, biodegradable container.
The cremation equipment that we have selected incorporates the latest filtration technology to ensure that particulates are removed by dust filters and any toxins such as mercury are removed with active carbon filtration. As a result, the air emitted from our chimneys is extremely clean.
Instead of using plastic urns we have chosen a new kind of container made from cellulose to ensure it is both robust AND biodegradable.
The way we consume energy is also considered - from the building's insulation and heat-recovery system to the timing of individual cremations to minimise the consumption of fossil fuels.
If you would like to visit Charlton Park Crematorium, we welcome anyone here and the grounds are open between 8am to 8pm on weekdays and 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
