Cremation Packages

Secure Haven believe, that at a time of grief, families should immediately be able to view the funeral costs involved in preparing the arrangements for their loved one. We have created two bespoke packages which represent the needs of the modern family to enable them to provide a service tailored to their wishes.

Whatever package a family chooses, they will always receive our utmost care and full support throughout this difficult time. Secure Haven can provide funerals from a non-service cremation, without the need for a ceremony, to a full service at a crematorium of their choice in the most traditional manner. By using our packages – extras if they so wish – families can understand how much the funeral will cost and can tailor the ceremony to their wishes.

Our Services

When A Loved One Dies

When a loved one dies, family members face many important tasks to perform and sadly this is needed to be done at a time of personal distress. Secure Haven understand this and we have a detailed check-list to help families register the death and plan for the funeral.

Chapel Of Rest

At Secure Haven’s beautiful Grade 2 listed barn we have two Chapels of rest. The larger room can cater for up to 20 family members and friends for private viewings prior to the funeral and our smaller room can be for more intimate gatherings of up to 4 people.

Life Celebrations

Secure Haven can create funerals and memorials that are meaningful, reflect the  journey through this world and celebrate the life of your loved one. Our Humanist Celebrants, or our Inter-Faith Minister, Karem Barratt, will work with you to craft a service that reflects true beliefs, life views and genuine personalities.

Bespoke Ashes Storage

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.

Humanist Services

Humanist funerals and memorial services offer a personal way to say goodbye to those who have lived without religion. Many thousands are conducted by their celebrants each year. Humanist Funerals gather people together to express sadness at their loss but also celebrate the life they lived.

Bereavement Support

At Secure Haven we believe that our service to the family does not stop at the funeral ceremony. We understand that the grief of a loved one’s death may need support.
