Boston Crematorium

Boston Crematorium

The Boston Crematorium, inaugurated in April 1966, serves around 900 funerals annually amidst 19 acres of well-maintained grounds. The landscape features memorial rose beds, various trees, and shrubs, creating a serene environment. The cemetery, established in 1855, houses nearly 38,000 burials, with a comprehensive index available at the cemetery office, covering both graves and memorials, including notable ones like Sir Herbert Ingram MP's, founder of the London Illustrated News.

Facilities include ample parking, a waiting room with public toilets, and provisions for disabled persons. While catering services aren’t available, nearby cafes and teashops offer alternatives. 

The operating hours for offices and the chapel are weekdays from 9 am to 5 pm, closed on weekends and public holidays. The Book of Remembrance is accessible during similar hours on weekdays and open on weekends and public holidays from 9 am to 4 pm. 

Please remember: you need to book an appointment at the Boston Crematorium in order to discuss your plans. We’d be happy to help you do this, so feel free to get in touch with one of our personal advisers.
