New crematorium and cemetery opened in the Borough
A new crematorium serving the Borough of Broxbourne has opened in Hoddesdon. The Woollensbrook Crematorium and Cemetery is located just off Hertford Road. It is set in a natural landscape surrounded by woodland and its opening meets the need for a new crematorium to serve the area and relieve pressure on neighbouring crematoria.
Vital additional burial ground will be provided too with the existing cemetery on Ware Road in Hoddesdon due to run out of space in the next two years.
Westerleigh Group, the leading developer and operator of crematoria and cemeteries in the UK, was selected by the Council to build and operate a crematorium on its land. Upon completion of the building, the firm was granted a long-term lease for the site.
Finished in natural stone, the facility provides a tranquil and convenient place for local families to hold a funeral. Woollensbrook promises to offer something personal and all facilities have been built to a very high standard.
The 96-seat chapel can cater for all religions and beliefs and has been fitted with large bay windows overlooking a water garden and the surrounding woodland beyond. A state of the art digital music system has been fitted alongside a traditional organ to cater for all requirements.
