Attending a Service at Kent & Sussex Crematorium

When you visit the Crematorium in Tunbridge Wells

If you’re attending a service at Kent & Sussex Crematorium; you might want to read this page and explore all the facilities available. There is just one cremation chapel at this site that can normally accommodate up to 90 seated people. If needed the entrance hall will take up to another 30 people standing.

As part of the ongoing service offered to families, there is a media system available to broadcast the funeral service privately and securely over the internet. This means that friends and relatives can attend the service at the Tunbridge Wells Crematorium anywhere in the world. This is a vital service at the moment, especially with limited numbers being able to attend a funeral service. The full service can be viewed either ‘live’ on the day by logging in at the correct time, or ‘on demand’ up to 28 days after the service.

Book of Remembrance

Next to the chapel there is a public waiting room, a room displaying the Book of Remembrance and following the chapel, when families and friends leave after the service, they will walk out into an enclosed open air “flower court”. This is where most families will stand to speak with one another and view the flower arrangements.

The entire funeral service may take place at the crematorium. Alternatively, a service can be held elsewhere followed by a ‘committal only’ service at the crematorium.

The cemetery chapel offers an alternative to the larger crematorium chapel and has many of the media facilities found at the crematorium. This chapel can accommodate up to 55 people seated in a more ‘traditional setting’.

Or you may choose to have no service at all and the coffin can be taken direct to the crematory.

Car parking facilities are excellent at this crematorium and the flow of the site ensures a smooth and calm service throughout.
