Cremations at GreenAcres
Cremation services at some venues can feel rushed and impersonal. That’s because there’s limited time before the next service begins, meaning families can feel under pressure, without enough time to honour their loved one in the way they wish.
At GreenAcres, we do things differently. There’s no rush, no time pressure. It doesn’t matter what your faith, beliefs or cultural practices are, you can celebrate the life of the person you love in the way they’d have wished.
The cremation service takes place in our beautiful Service Hall. Afterwards, the coffin is transported by our team in a private vehicle to a licensed crematorium for the cremation itself.
Working with your chosen Funeral Director, we’ll arrange for your loved one’s ashes to be returned to you, interred, scattered, or stored as you wish.
Each of our magnificent Service Halls has a unique ambience; a perfect combination of music and lighting, surrounded by a beautiful natural environment.
Music and live webcast (where available) are included in the cost of both the Premium and Prestige Service. This means the whole service can be live streamed for mourners unable to attend. You can include a single, static photo with our Premium service and a visual tribute sideshow of up to 25 photos with our Prestige service.
A memorial service can take place either before or after the ashes have been scattered or interred, either at our park or elsewhere.
You can also arrange to place a memorial to your loved one in our park. Alternatively, if you prefer to preserve their remains at home, you can choose from various small personal memorial keepsakes, as well as larger urns and ashes caskets.
CREMATION SERVICES – YOUR OPTIONS
With three options available, you can choose the service that best suits your needs.
A 30-minute premium service is ideal for families who prefer a short, intimate service rather than something more detailed or involved.
Graveside or committal service
A graveside (or committal) service involves holding a short funeral service at the burial site.
Unwitnessed Cremation Service
An unwitnessed cremation service involves your chosen Funeral Director without family or friends being present. After a short, respectful service at a GreenAcres park, the coffin is transported to a licensed crematorium after which the ashes are either returned to you or stored according to your wishes.

My husband said he wanted to have his service at GreenAcres before he passed away. He had been to a couple of services there and thought it was beautiful. Thank you to everyone at Kemnal! – Joan, Kent
A friend had recommended the calmness and tranquillity. We didn’t want a religious ceremony. We chose our own music. The overall service was very professional with this being a very difficult time for us all. The team were all lovely, thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. – Jemma, Liverpool
“The cremation service was amazing. Not sombre or sad. We were able to plan our own service and the wonderful team made some great suggestions. Music so easy to arrange. A huge thank you, it was truly beautiful.
We had attended a funeral there before and loved the light modern building overlooking the woodland and the relaxed atmosphere. Paul had requested the celebration of his life be held there – it suited his eco-credentials. The setting was perfect; the ceremony could not have gone any better. It was sad, yet uplifting, helped enormously by
