CEMETERIES & MEMORIALS

Bromley’s Cemeteries Service aims to deliver a professional and caring service. Our priority is to ensure that all funerals are carried out in a dignified manner. We also understand that a funeral is an important part of the grieving process and recognise that each person’s needs are different.  The Cemeteries Office staff will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have on bereavement, memorials, opening closing times and the maintenance of cemeteries grounds.

Our booklet, here, explains in detail the difference between grave types, to help with your choice, as well as any frequently asked questions. We can help you with your arrangements by liaising with your Funeral Directors, giving advice on the type of grave and their availability and discussing any special religious requirements.

We know how important it is for people to commemorate those departed. We can offer advice on a number of memorials such as benches. If you decide to erect a memorial on the grave we will offer you guidance on what type is permitted.

At Bromley we do not provide a crematorium service, but some of our cemeteries have memorial gardens for cremated remains where loved ones can be commemorated with a granite/stone plaque.

We understand that if you have suffered a bereavement of a baby or small child, that you may have special requirements. We shall endeavour to accommodate these wherever possible.
