This is the first newsletter from West Berkshire Crematorium. The aim of the newsletter is to provide an update regarding the continual changes and improvements to the site and how these improvements will benefit the families and congregations who attend the services.
A little about West Berkshire Crematorium.
West Berkshire Crematorium opened in January 2006 and has held nearly 12 000 services to date, supplying an essential service to the people of West Berkshire, South Oxfordshire and North Hampshire. The chapel seats 96 people with further standing room and has a very modern look on both the inside and outside.
West Berkshire Crematorium is managed by the Westerleigh Group, a prestigious crematoria company, well renowned for its quality of not only building crematoria but also services to the bereaved.
Gardens of Remembrance
We have an extensive range of memorial options on site. In recent months we have had a new Cherub memorial area installed, which incorporates an area for the scattering of ashes, Cherub tear-drop plaques, bench plaques and Reflection stones. This area has been very well received and has added a new dimension to the grounds.
The new 2017 Memorial Brochure is now available and is full of new, exciting and innovative products to honour and remember loved ones.
If you are interested in receiving a brochure, please feel free to contact us using the details on the back page of this newsletter and we will be more than happy to post one out to you alternatively the brochure is easily down-loadable via the West Berkshire Crematorium Website.
