Mendip Crematorium

Mendip Crematorium, established in Paulton in March 2011, occupies 5 acres of meticulously maintained grounds. Committed to providing compassionate support during funeral services, their dedicated staff treats every family with dignity and respect. The multi-faith chapel, accommodating 94 attendees, features a modern organ and the Wesley music system, offering an extensive selection of hymns and music.

The crematorium ensures accessibility for the disabled, with designated parking, wheelchair access, toilet facilities, and a loop system in the chapel. Tranquil gardens of remembrance, including paths leading to a lake and permanent memorials, offer a serene setting for remembering loved ones. The memorial staff is available for guidance, and the gardens remain open 365 days a year. Parking is available with 64 spaces.
