Planning in Chapel Services for 150 Years

A chapel is a venue which is typically a lot smaller than a church but is still regarded as a Christian place of prayer and worship. Chapels are usually distinguished from churches by the fact they don’t typically have a parish or monastic community permanently attached to them. If your funeral arrangements are for a small, low-key service with an intimate gathering, a chapel is an excellent choice of venue.


In our Chapel of Rest, you and other funeral-goers can come to view the deceased one last time. This is a good way to remember them as they were in happier times or to see them at peace one last time. While this can be a difficult decision to make, viewings often help to begin the healing process, providing a sense of closure for loved ones. Our in chapel services also cover all other aspects of the funeral too, such as:


  • Burial or Cremation
  • Religious or Non-Religious Service
  • Flowers and Donations
  • Vehicle Hire
  • Choice of Coffin


If there’s any music you’d like to be played, let us know, and we’ll make it happen. Obituary notices can be taken care of by our funeral directors, and we’ll also help you to choose the right coffin for your loved one (assuming you opted for burial instead of cremation). If you choose to have your loved one cremated, there are various options for cremated remains available to you. And we’ll be happy to retain the ashes for as long as you need to make a decision.
