Following the death of a loved one, your chosen funeral director (details available in local telephone directory) will help you through the process of organising a death certificate, the registration of death, the medical papers for cremation and the crematorium booking.
We welcome visits from families and ministers, or service leaders, in advance of a funeral or cremation to talk about any special requirements.
East Devon Crematorium is non-denominational and can therefore accommodate all faiths as well as non-religious services.

The Chapel seats 95 people, with the ability to comfortably accommodate up to 105. The decor is simple, clean and calm with an autumnal colour scheme and oak and beech wood fittings. Further numbers can be accommodated by opening the doors to the foyer and porte-cochere, which both feature relay speakers allowing up to 200 people to hear the service and stay dry in inclement weather.
Music is available, either from our own church organ (with organist, if required) or select music from the extensive libraries of our multimedia system. Speakers in the ceiling of the foyer and porte-cochere (covered entrance) allow music and the service, to be broadcast to mourners outside.
Webcasting is being offered to families who have relatives or friends who are unable to travel to the funeral. This service is available by contacting the Crematorium Manager who will provide you with a secure code number, allowing distant mourners to access a web page and watch the funeral as it happens on their computer screen. A charge is made for this service and conditions apply.
Memorial Gardens are set in 10 acres of land, and feature a native mix of indigenous, broadleaf trees, backed by mature woodland which are set in lawns, planted with shrubs and areas with wild flowers and grasses. Seating areas allow time for rest and reflection.
