Wimpole Road Chapel and Cremation Service

In this section

Our Wimpole Road funeral branch in Colchester, is home to our unique service chapel, which provides a light and modern setting for the funeral service of your loved one.

Tailor the service by making use of our Obitus music system and host up to 100 guests with on-site parking and flexible service slots available Monday to Friday.

This service package includes the cremation which will take place locally following the funeral service. This is a cost-effective alternative to having the funeral service at the crematorium itself. Your loved one will remain in our care until they are transported to the crematorium, and you will be able to collect their ashes from your local branch once the cremation has taken place.
