Loved in Life... Treasured in Death

How we can help


Safe, Private and Dignifed Storage of a Loved One's Ashes for Just a £1 per day - Providing you time and peace of mind to decide upon a final resting place when the time is right.

Grief over a loved one’s death can make the choice over a permanent resting place for their ashes overwhelming.

At Secure Haven, we understand this and will provide a safe, private and dignified place for your loved one’s treasured ashes to be stored for as long as you wish, giving you the time you need to make important long-term decisions.

Once in our safe-keeping, the ashes can be visited as often as required, leaving you confident that your urn is being stored in a private and dignified manner, until you have decided on their final resting place.

Secure Haven is located in a historic barn in the Essex countryside which has been specially adapted for its new role. Founders Paul and Cheryl Yarwood have established Secure Haven to provide grieving relatives with a caring and respectful storage option for their treasured ashes.

On Behalf of Region F members, I would like to express our thanks to you, and your team for not only the most educational tour of your premises and the use of a function room for our meeting but for the hospitality you extended to us. 

The system of how safe storage of treasured ashes are received and stored by yourselves in the upstairs room each individually with their own lockers was really educational. 

Traceability is clearly evident and the whole process carried out in a very professional manner. 

We were amazed at the variety of urns available and the Spiritree which is incredible not only as a remembrance tree but as an environmentally friendly way of deposing of ashes whilst growing new roots. 

The silver keepsake jewellery is another area where you are striving to meet the needs of customers in a very personal way and is most welcome. 

You were all so good we want to come back! Thank you all so much.

Angela Satterly BIFD Region F Secretary

We can collect your treasured ashes or you may wish to bring them along yourself

We understand your grief and know from experience that collecting a loved one's ashes from the crematorium or funeral director can be an overwhelming prospect.

We can arrange to have the ashes collected and, if required, transferred into an urn of your choice at Secure Haven. We will then inter the urn respectfully into its Secure Niche. You are of course very welcome to inter them yourself or with the support of your funeral arranger.

Included as part of our service, we are able to collect your loved one's ashes from either a residential address or from the funeral director/crematorium throughout Essex. For collections further afield, a secure courier can be arranged or a member of our support team can do this in person at an additional agreed charge.

Talk to us about how you would like this to happen. We know this is a difficult time and we are here to help you.
