Funeral services can be arranged at a number of venues in Chesterfield, Derbyshire and the surrounding area. There is the option of using the Rose Hill United Reformed Church on Soresby Street, an intimate venue near Chesterfield Studios'' Performing Arts Theatre in Rose Hill. The historic Central Methodist Church in Saltergate is roomy with beautiful stained glass. It is Grade II listed and provides a calm and contemplative atmosphere. The Chesterfield Parish Church, dedicated to St Mary and All Saints, dates back to the 1200s, although most of the remaining architecture is from the 14th century. The church is well-known for its famous twisted spire, caused by inexperienced builders using unseasoned timber and lead tiles to construct it. St Thomas'' Church in Brampton is another option. The historic church is Grade II-listed with an ample interior and a modern community centre directly adjacent to the main church building. Other options include the Chesterfield Quaker Meeting Hall, Loundsley Green Church, Walton Evangelical Church on Moorland View Road, or the Storrs Road Methodist Church. Fenix Funeral Directors in Chesterfield will take care of all the arrangements, including organising the officiant that will conduct the service on behalf of the family.
If you would like for your loved one to be interred via burial in Chesterfield and the surrounding areas, there are several options. Boythorpe Cemetery on Boythorpe Crescent offers full, lawn-style burials and space for cremated remains and memorial options. There is no chapel for funeral services, but intimate graveside funerals can be accommodated. Spital Cemetery on Hady Hill offers both consecrated and non-consecrated burial options. There are full and half-plots still available. The cemetery is very well-kept, with sprawling lawns and many mature trees. Fenix Funeral Directors in Chesterfield can arrange for funeral services to take place at nearby churches or chapels.
The Chesterfield and District Crematorium in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, is the closest option for families that wish to intern the deceased via cremation. The site spans across 20 acres near Brimington and is extensively landscaped with trees, shrubs and flowers. There is a chapel where funerals can be held. It has recently been modernised and fully refurbished, with new seats and additional capacity, floral displays and lighting. It can seat up to 100 mourners. The floral tribute area has been given a new covered roof to shelter attendees from the elements. In the event of a direct cremation, a short committal ceremony will precede the cremation.
Strictly speaking, anyone can make their own funeral arrangements. However, many families find it really difficult to plan a funeral during such a difficult time in their lives. Funeral directors offer their local knowledge and personal expertise to deliver a valuable service to those in mourning. This includes arranging funerals, but also a host of other services, including assisting with paperwork, booking venues, offering bereavement counselling and paying third-party costs. This enables you to focus on your mourning, not coordinating the funeral and filling out paperwork.
The funeral director will arrange the service in accordance with your wishes. The ceremony may include a religious service or memorial, hymns and eulogies dedicated to the memory of the person that has been lost. It is usually about 30-45 minutes long. Thereafter, the attendees will usually proceed to the interment site or wake. Fenix Funeral Directors in Chesterfield can organise the whole process and arrange any elements you wish, from flowers to music to venues.
Independent funeral directors are small businesses as opposed to the large, co-op funeral care you might find on the high street. It''s not unusual for an independent funeral director to be a family-owned business with roots in their local communities dating back hundreds of years. While co-op funeral care is readily available, independents offer personal attention and excellent service.
Crematoria have strict opening hours. Some cemeteries remain open two hours a day to pedestrians, but most operate from dawn to dusk for safety reasons. Burial and cremation services typically only occur during weekdays before 5 pm. If you prefer to have the funeral over the weekend, it''s best to let us know in advance to make special arrangements. Note that additional fees may be applicable, but we will discuss the funeral cost before making any arrangements.
