West Herts Crematorium Joint Committee is pleased to invite residents and community members to attend two open days to explore the new Hemel Hempstead Crematorium and its services before its official opening in the coming months.

One of the primary goals of the new crematorium is to offer an expanded capacity for the west Hertfordshire region, ensuring that residents have access to two exceptional facilities in which to say goodbye to their loved ones. With longer service times and extensive media choices, the facility aims to provide the community with a peaceful environment for families to pay their final respects.

All residents and interested parties are invited to come along to witness the dedication and care that has gone into creating this facility. There will be a guided tour of the entire site and the opportunity to learn about the services provided.

The open days will be held on the following dates:

  • Thursday 3 August – 10am to 4pm
  • Saturday 5 August – 9am to 1pm

There is no need to book, but attendees are advised that the last tour of the day will be 3pm on Thursday 3 August and 12pm on Saturday 5 August. The address of the new site is: 

Hemel Hempstead Crematorium, Bedmond Road, Hemel Hempstead HP3 8LL

Cllr Robin Bromham, Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Operations at Dacorum Borough Council, said “I am pleased to announce that the new Hemel Hempstead Crematorium on Bedmond Road will be opening soon. The building architecture incorporates complex shapes with wooden structures to provide a serene and comforting place to say our final farewells to loved ones. The surroundings are landscaped and planted to complement Bunkers Park and Long Deans valley beyond.”
