Chapel and facilities information
Our newly redeveloped Crematorium has been thoughtfully redesigned to create a very peaceful place for people to remember their loved ones.
We have a range of services to choose from (for the latest fees, please see our).
Description of service

|8.40||Direct service / non attended||£495|
Guildford crematorium was rebuilt in 2018/19 based on a design featuring stunning courtyards and courtyard gardens.
Additional planting surrounds a new reflection pool, providing a peaceful and meditative environment filled with different colours and scents throughout the year.
We recognise that every funeral service should be arranged to suit individual needs. Services can be religious or non-religious in nature and as formal or informal as you wish.
The chapel space features a stunning vaulted roof, which allows natural light to create a calm and uplifting environment. The building uses an array of natural materials, including Oak and York stone and can accommodate 132 people seated.
There is additional space for larger services in the chapel lobby and waiting room. Both of these areas have screens from which people can view the service.
The chapel has a flexible seating plan with chairs that can be arranged according to the size and type of service required. Underfloor heating makes this a warm and comfortable space.
A screen at the front of the chapel allows the display of visual tributes during the service. This can be organised through your funeral director. Anyone with a hearing aid may access the T loop system by setting it to the T position.
The main car park has space for 103 cars with overflow parking provided nearby.
See arrivals diagram below, showing access route to the chapel and car park.
Disabled parking spaces are provided near the chapel entrance. Electric car charging points are also available.
Toilets with disabled and baby change facilities are located by the main car park (Remembrance Court) and also by the chapel waiting room. The site is designed to be fully accessible to all.
Our waiting room has comfortable sofas and chairs and a screen to watch the service in the chapel if this is required. The room is next to the toilet facilities with a view of our courtyard garden and the approaching funeral cortège.
The waiting room has plenty of seating and hot drink facilities.
