New Memorial Scheme

We are pleased to announce the redevelopment of Pergola walk at Southend Crematorium.

The new design will incorporate the existing slate memorial tablets whilst introducing a new range of memorials which will offer both traditional and modern designs.

We are aware that during the development unfortunately there will be some disruption and limited access. The project has been meticulously planned to minimise disruption wherever possible.

The project is scheduled to start on Monday 2 January 2017 and will take 20 weeks to complete. Whilst the area is being redeveloped we will be providing regular updates. 

For more information please see New Memorial Scheme FAQs together with an artists impression of the development.
