Funeral service

Funeral service

The arrangement of a funeral service is a personal choice, and something that can be discussed with either your funeral director or the person chosen to conduct the service.

You may wish for the entire funeral service to take place at Medway Crematorium, or you may wish for a committal only service at the crematorium, with the service being held elsewhere beforehand.

Alternatively, you may not want a service at all, nor wish to attend the crematorium. To assist this we are happy to accommodate the coffin direct to our crematory.

Service time

Both chapels will run 60-minute service slots. 

The East Chapel will start on the hour, with the West Chapel starting at half past the hour. 

The chapels will need 10 minutes between services so they can be cleaned. 


Music is a significant part of a funeral service. Our chapels are equipped with an organ and an organist can be arranged by your funeral director.

They can play a variety of:

  • hymns
  • classical music
  • modern music.

You will be able to use our digital music system which has an online library with a variety of songs to choose from.

At our chapels you can:

  • use the large screen to display photos and videos
  • live stream the service through a secure website
  • watch the recorded live stream up to 28 days after the service.
