Welcome to Aylesbury Vale Crematorium

A new crematorium for Aylesbury Vale, built to the highest standard and in sympathy with the surrounding countryside and waters. It is a natural  and peaceful place for families to hold the Funeral service of their choice.

Set on the edge of Watermead Lake and bordered by the River Thame, the crematorium is shaped by water. The final entrance to the chapel carries the funeral cortege over a bridge, creating a distinct, private space for mourners to gather before the service. A generous car park lies below, designed to hold just one funeral at a time, preserving the individuality for each occasion.

The chapel is light and open, finished in natural materials with stunning views over the lake beyond. The whole building is circular, allowing the time and space so necessary for each funeral.

Nestled into a a wooded hillside, the gardens of remembrance wind around the hilltop to lower lawns beyond, offering long range views of the open countryside beyond.

A special oasis on the edge of Aylesbury, overlooking the waters beyond and offering a tranquil setting for families to hold their individual funeral.
