Set in 8.5 acres, The Oaks is surrounded by beautiful ancient semi-natural woodland and wildflower meadow, providing a picturesque setting for the Crematorium building which has been sensitively designed. As well as creating a space that is relevant for all cultures, ages and beliefs, it provides a tranquil sanctuary for the bereaved, inspired by its natural setting.

The low level oak cladding and flint walls, combined with a green ‘living’ sedum roof giving the building the appearance of rising from its wildflower meadow setting. As well as encompassing the chapel beneath, the roof provides additional green habitat for wildlife.

You will find that some areas are still being landscaped and we expect that this work will be completed by the middle of 2014.

I am always pleased to personally answer any questions you may have so please feel free to contact me by either calling in or by telephoning me on 023 9222 2648.
