Funeral Directors in Kingston

Willow Lake Funeral Directors in Kingston upon Thames provides a modern funeral service for £1995.

Our Kingston chapel is set within the grounds of Kingston Cemetery.

Also known as Bonner Hill, it is a striking Victorian cemetery established in 1855 and set in 25 acres of hills and ancient woodland, bordered by the Hogsmill River. It’s a beautiful and tranquil spot to celebrate a life. The native woodland includes birch, ash, oak, hawthorn, yew and holly and many of the trees are over a century old. The cemetery is laid out on formal lines with two gothic chapels and a war memorial.

Our Kingston chapel can be found surrounded by landscaped gardens within the cemetery grounds. It can seat 60 people and has space for more to stand. It also has a small waiting area.

There are ample car parking spaces and good transport links with Greater London and the surrounding area.

Please be aware there are currently some restrictions at funerals due to the covid-19 pandemic. Please call our caring team on 0800 464  7277 to discuss.

Colin Irwin

After a long career as a journalist, editor, author and broadcaster, I conducted my first funeral at the specific request of the deceased – my own father.

Gearing the entire service to reflect my father’s life, loves, beliefs and personality proved to be comforting, gratifying and surprisingly uplifting – a genuine celebration of his life and a dignified and respectful way of saying goodbye.

Ruth Blackford

As a trained funeral celebrant, it is my privilege to create and deliver bespoke and meaningful ceremonies that are in line with your wishes. I believe that funerals don’t all have to follow the same format, that each service should be as individual and unique as the person it commemorates, reflecting their values, beliefs and lifestyle. Your wishes are my priority and you can be assured of choice when making decisions on the content of the service for your loved one.

I will recommend Willow Lake to anyone needing a funeral director. Our service was very nice and the price was much lower than other funeral directors. We felt like we received very good value for money.
