Twilight services at Test Valley Crematorium

A Hampshire crematorium is expanding the funeral options available to local families by introducing new twilight services.


Test Valley Crematorium now offers the bereaved the opportunity to book final farewells to their loved ones at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm from Monday to Friday, with a service of up to 40 minutes in the chapel.


Test Valley Crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group, one of the UK’s largest independent owners and operators of crematoria and cemeteries, with 40 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, tranquil places for people to visit and reflect.


Westerleigh Group prides itself on providing exceptional care to the bereaved, the standards of which are inspected by the Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities (FBCA) in England and Wales and the Scottish Government.


Manager Robert Metcalf said: “We are always looking for ways to offer local families more choice when it comes to arranging funerals.


“Spring is on its way and with it will come some beautiful twilight evenings, with the soothing backdrop of birdsong over our beautiful grounds, which could provide a comforting environment for a funeral.


“The later services may also help those who have friends and relatives who want to pay their respects but who may have difficulty being able to attend a daytime service because of other commitments.


“Test Valley Crematorium, like all the Westerleigh Group crematoria, deeply cares about enabling families to create a funeral that is uniquely personal to those they have lost, and the new option of being able to choose a twilight service is just another way in which we provide more choice for those we support.


“Bereaved families can now request this service when making arrangements with their funeral director.”
