Bentley Crematorium and Cemetery

Situated on the outskirts of Brentwood in Pilgrims Hatch, Bentley Crematorium and Cemetery sits within beautiful manicured grounds, providing a peaceful setting for remembering loved ones and quiet contemplation.

The modern facility, which opened in 2012, houses a multi-faith chapel –  meeting the needs of all cultures, religions and non-religions.

It offers extended service times of up to 45 minutes, allowing families the time they need to pay a respectful farewell.

Funeral services at Bentley Crematorium

Whether you require a small intimate service or the space to host a large group of friends and family, Bentley Crematorium can accommodate.

It has space in its chapel to seat 100 mourners, with heating for the winter months and air conditioning in the summer to keep guests comfortable.

For larger congregations, there is additional standing space for a further 100 people in the waiting area where they can watch the service on a large TV screen and listen via a fully-equipped sound system.

The two televisions screens at the chapel also provide an opportunity to display treasured videos and photographs of loved ones, making services more personal and special.

There are many musical options to choose from and a loop facility is available to help those who have difficulty with hearing, so they don’t miss any part of the service. The crematorium also has disabled access and toilets.
