SAIF Associate opens new crematorium in RomseyNovember 28, 2017 // No Comments
SAIF Associate, The Westerleigh Group, has opened its new Test Valley Crematorium. Based in Ridge Lane, Romsey, the site will relieve congestion at Southampton Crematorium, the 25th busiest in the UK and enable bereaved families in Romsey and across the Test Valley, Totton and other parts of Waterside to benefit from shorter journey times and an improved standard of service.
Set against a background of established woodland and well screened from the main road, Test Valley Crematorium has been designed to be in keeping with the character of the rural area, blending into its surroundings. The quiet location offers the privacy that families appreciate at a funeral. The building is finished in local farmhouse brick in sympathy with the surrounding area and has large bay windows overlooking a water garden and countryside beyond. The chapel will seat 96 people and has been equipped with a state-of-the-art digital media system that gives access to an enormous choice of music tracks together with the facility to webcast services across the world, as well as a traditional organ. Service times will be at hourly intervals ensuring that each service can be a unique and dignified event for the bereaved of all beliefs.
