Tucked away in a small pocket of woodland in the north of the town, Southampton Crematorium provides a comprehensive and convenient service for your loved one's funeral. Not far from a junction of the M27, it is easy to reach by car or Swaythling railway station.
Modern in its architecture, the crematorium is owned and operated by the local authority and was built in the 1970s. Two chapels inside provide seating for a smaller gathering of up to 45 or a larger service of up to 126 people. A Wesley music system in each of these allow you to choose from a wide selection of pre-recorded music tracks, or an organ is available for your privately engaged organist. The chapels are fitted with induction loops, and the facilities are highly accessible to wheelchair users.
The Gardens of Remembrance are one of the most outstanding features of the Southampton Crematorium, with 15 acres of woodland and tranquil streams and ponds, statuary and even wild deer.
Many memorial options are available, such as a Book of Remembrance which is contained in its own special building, urn plaques, and keepsake jewellery.
