Funerals in Slough

This beautiful contemporary funeral venue is set within 72 acres of stunning mature woodland.

Services are held in a beautiful timber and glass hall carefully crafted to be in complete harmony with the natural world and offering panoramic views of the surrounding trees.

Accessible and comfortable, this hall has flexible seating for up to 120 people and offers excellent acoustics and an audio system to share readings and musical tributes.

In addition there is a welcoming and hospitable second hall which can be used before and/or after the service as a meeting place and for refreshments. Close to these buildings you’ll find the calming tranquillity of the Memorial Garden, a place of peaceful reflection surrounded by natural beauty.

This modern venue is located in a quiet woodland setting with ample parking, just a short drive from Slough, Beaconsfield, and High Wycombe.

Please be aware there are currently restrictions at funerals due to the covid-19 pandemic. Please check the latest guidelines here.

Our celebrants

Our experienced and caring celebrants are here to support you. They will meet with you face to face and work with you to craft a unique service to celebrate your loved one’s life. They will guide you on the structure of the service, help write speeches and make suggestions for music, poetry, and readings. If you wish, they will also conduct the service.

If you would like a religious service, please talk to us – we can put you in touch with officiants from a range of faiths.

Gail Kemp

Like everyone, I have lost family and friends over the years and I know the importance of a meaningful funeral ceremony – both for the person who has died and for those left behind. A former journalist and broadcaster, I trained to become a Civil Funeral Celebrant with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants in 2015 – and it is now the only work I do.

It is a genuine privilege to be able to help families plan a funeral service – it is the last thing any of us can ever do for a loved one. Everybody has different needs and expectations, and, as an experienced celebrant, I will work closely with you to make sure every detail is right, and, if you need them, I have resources that will help you choose suitable poetry, readings, music, prayers and hymns.

Peter Taylor

I have a varied background but have spent the last ten years working in the Funeral industry as manager and as a funeral celebrant.

My initial career choice was as a vicar where I served for 18years. I would now describe myself as a spiritual person, and find that many services do not wish to be “Religious”, but have an element of spirituality or hope in them. So I conduct ceremonies from humanist to religious. Whilst I can make suggestions for the ceremony, it is important that you receive the ceremony you want.

Dominique Casbeard

I consider myself honoured to have been able to assist many families over the years I have been a funeral and memorial celebrant.

Every service I deliver is different, as we are all so wonderfully unique and deserve a special farewell, to reflect our lives, loves and beliefs.

I take the time to chat to you at great length, to ensure your wishes for celebrating your loved ones life are fully realised, before going onto make sure you are completely happy with everything that will be included on the day.

I love what I do and you can be assured that this is conveyed in the service that I provide.
