Celebration Package – £3,295

Service at Old Park Meadow followed by unattended cremation

The team at Secure Haven Funeral Directors works closely with Old Park Meadow Lodge, which is located on the outskirts of Chelmsford. Together, we have created the Celebration Package that offers a ceremony in a beautiful natural setting so that families can celebrate their loved one’s life in a tranquil location. It combines a full funeral service with a non-attended direct cremation on the next working day, at a local crematorium of our choice.


Located in the heart of the Essex countryside, Old Park Meadow Lodge is an impressive glass and timber building. Its large folding glass doors allow the beauty of the surrounding meadows and woodland to be enjoyed. The lodge is purpose-built to hold celebration of life services, where you can honour the life of your loved one in a truly stunning location –  it is also ideally suited for a wake afterwards. Doctor’s fees are not included and will be applied, if necessary.

This package includes the following:

  • Removal from home, care home, hospice or hospital during office hours, within a 20 miles radius of Broomfield premises.
  • Dressing and preparation.
  • Private viewing in our Chapel of Rest, during office hours.
  • Provision of a quality, veneer coffin.
  • Minister/Celebrant fees.
  • Service at Old Park Meadow.
  • Unattended Direct cremation on the following working day.
  • Motor hearse.
  • On-line obituary and donations.
  • Thirty copies of the order of service.
  • Provision of simple Service Sheets.

Further details about this package:

  • Old Park Meadow is located on the Dunmow Road, the B1008, at North End between Chelmsford and Great Dunmow. It is located approximately nine miles from Chelmsford centre and three miles from Great Dunmow. If you are using a SatNav, the best postcode is CM6 3PL.
  • Please inform us if your loved one is heavier than 17 stone as we will need to provide extra staff for safe and dignified transfer into our care.
  • If your loved one is over 21 stone or 6’6″ in height, an additional fee of £390 will be applied for a specially-ordered coffin and additional bearing staff.
  • Payment terms – A 50% deposit is required prior to the funeral and the balance is required 7 days after the service.
