welcome to basildon crematorium & cemetery

Set in eight 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.

The air conditioned chapel is light and spacious, furnished in natural woods and brick and framed with large picture windows.

Music is available for all tastes with a modern sound system, together with hearing loop, as well as the more traditional organ to allow an individual funeral to be arranged on every occasion.

A new cemetery opened in 2007, set within beautifully maintained grounds and with particularly striking views across the Essex countryside.
