Open day at Barham Crematorium

Barham Crematorium is issuing an open invitation to those living in the surrounding communities to visit and find out about the exceptional services it offers.


And at the same time, they could also take time to pause, reflect and remember their father figures, as the site hosts a community open day on Saturday 15 June, the day before Father’s Day.


The event runs between 10am and 2pm and will enable visitors to tour the crematorium and its landscaped grounds, set within acres of parkland with majestic views across the Elham Valley.


Visitors will also have the opportunity to take a tour of the crematory if they wish and can take the opportunity to honour their fathers or father figures by personalising a commemorative pebble and/or posting a card, letter or message into the crematorium’s Letters to Loved Ones memorial post box.


Barham Crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group, one of the UK’s largest independent owners and operators of crematoria and cemeteries, with 40 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, peaceful places for people to visit and reflect.


Westerleigh Group prides itself on providing exceptional care to the bereaved, the standards of which are inspected by the Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities (FBCA) in England and Wales, and the Scottish Government.


Barham Crematorium Manager Remy David: “We are really looking forward to welcoming visitors to our site, where they can meet our friendly and supportive team and find out all about the exceptional care that we provide.


“This open day is available to anyone, even if it’s just to look around and understand what we do because you live nearby and fortunately, haven’t yet had a need to visit us. Everyone is welcome, whatever your reason. No appointment is necessary.


“Visitors can also discover how we can support them if they have a loved one’s ashes but have not yet decided how to honour their life through memorialisation.
