Willow Lake Funeral Directors conducts modern funeral services in the seaside town of Torquay for £1995, with no hidden fees or disbursements. 


Our Torquay chapel and crematorium has been serving the communities of the English riviera for generations. Today, the modern chapel continues to provide contemporary and welcoming funeral services for all faiths and religions.


Willow Lake Torquay’s chapel is a light and comfortable building that has recently undergone refurbishment. It has a state of the art digital music system that can cater for practically any music choice. Up to 40 people can be seated within the chapel.


The crematorium’s grounds are a peaceful sanctuary for quiet contemplation and reflection. They surround the chapel with immaculate lawns and flowerbeds and are open throughout the year. With its verdant premises just a couple of miles from the sea, Willow Lake Torquay is a tranquil environment for any funeral service.


We endeavour to tailor all of our funerals to our clients’ every need by letting them choose a celebrant or religious official to plan and lead the service. Our team includes professionals at performing non-religious ceremonies as well as representatives from a range of faiths who will meet with you before the day to personalise the funeral as part of the £1995 all-inclusive price.


Our expert team at Torquay will be on hand to ensure that your funeral service runs smoothly and according to your preferences. For example your celebrant or religious officiant will meet and greet your guests and can conduct the service for you. Likewise, the facilities at Torquay are extremely adaptable and can easily accommodate specific wishes.


Willow Lake Torquay is located on the north side of the holiday destination town and can be reached by bus, car or train. There is parking available onsite for over 70 vehicles including disabled bays close to the chapel.

Sarah Chapman

As an independent funeral celebrant, my role is to offer bereaved families a heartfelt funeral ceremony that reflects the wishes, beliefs and values of the deceased and their family. The ceremony will focus on celebrating and reflecting the life of the deceased and the tribute will be respectful and highly personal.

Whilst not a religious ceremony as such, religious content may be included, such as prayers or hymns.

Christine Mogford

A proud mother of three sons, and grandmother of four, I am privileged to live in the beautiful village of Bampton on the edge of Exmoor. Here I am able to take good care of my health by walking, swimming, and yoga, and have fun in our local amateur dramatics group.

My life purpose is supporting people through transitions, having been through many myself, the most recent being the loss of my second husband after only eight months of marriage.

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.

Steven put me at ease the first time we spoke on the phone. We were able to arrange the funeral very quickly and our celebrant gave a lovely speech at the service.
