Why time matters to us

As funeral professionals something we hear regularly from families is how there isn’t enough time in a funeral service to say everything that is needed to say. To share the most important memories, let people give tributes or play the deceased’s favourite songs. It can be so difficult to condense a life into a 30 minute time slot and many families are left feeling like they didn’t do enough or paying for an additional 15 or 30 minutes and adding to an already costly funeral bill. 

We want you to have as much time as you need to say goodbye in a way that allows you to feel like you have done justice to your loved one. Our time slots are an hour in the chapel as standard and there is no cost to increase this by another hour. You also won’t be in a queue to enter the chapel as we ensure that no other services will be booked near your time slot ensuring you are not rushed or on a strict time schedule. 

60 Minutes as standard

No additional cost to extend time

Additional time for tea & coffee after the service

Traditionally, a 30 minute time slot in a Crematorium would mean a 20 minute dedicated service time. This allows for time for everyone to enter and exit the chapel. At The Old Chapel, we over a 60 minute time slot as standard with additional time for entering and exiting the chapel. Giving you more time to say goodbye, without being rushed and without being in a queue.
