Welcome to Bowers Gifford Crematorium and Cemetery 

Set in 18 acres of countryside, with views of the River Thames and Kent, the crematorium at Bowers Gifford offers a peaceful and rural setting for the people of South East Essex.

The crematorium is set close to the historic village of Bowers Gifford, overlooking the Thames estuary and with views across to the Kent Hills.

Surrounded by trees, lawns and with an ornamental pond at the centre of its gardens, the crematorium has a special, distinctive feel.
