North Devon Crematorium opened in 1966

North Devon Crematorium opened in 1966 and is the only crematorium in the North Devon area. The buildings sit within beautiful memorial gardens that feature a stunning array of roses and shrubs and provide a fitting place for peaceful reflection and remembrance.

On-site car parking is available for 130 cars with additional on-street parking available in the immediate vicinity (please park considerately).

There are two chapels available:

Aspen is the original chapel, capable of seating 72 mourners and is ideal for smaller services. It is due to undergo a significant upgrade in 2018 which will bring the benefits of digitally downloaded music, video tribute facilities, webcasting and recording. The original charm will be retained as well as the ability to have music played by an organist.

Rowan was completed in 2016 and is currently the largest crematorium chapel in the whole of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It can accommodate extremely large services with seating for over 250 mourners and a quiet viewing room where mourners have a need for privacy or quiet. There is also standing room for a significant number of additional mourners if needed. A very large canopy provides weather protection to visitors in the event of poor weather. The chapel is able to webcast services to anywhere in the world as well as having the benefits of digitally downloaded music, video tributes and recording. All services in Rowan are discretely recorded, meaning that if a mourner missed the service a recording can be obtained up to 6-weeks after the service.

Each chapel has its own waiting room toilets, disabled toilets and floral tribute viewing area.

Service times are available at 40 minute intervals with the ability to book a ‘double-service’.

There is a wide choice of memorials in terms of type and cost available at the crematorium. Please contact us for further information.
