Banbury Crematorium – The Chapel

Our Chapel has been designed to overlook some of the prettiest countryside in Oxfordshire and provides seating for up to 100 people. If required the Chapel can easily be adapted to suit individual funeral services, including provision of overflow seating. An induction loop system is fitted for those with impaired hearing and there are disabled parking and toilet facilities. Except when in use for services, the Chapel is open daily to visitors who may wish to sit in quiet contemplation as soft background music is played.

Books of Remembrance

The Books of Remembrance are located in the foyer of our Chapel, which is open 365 days of the year. The Books display the page for the current date, but viewing of a particular date is always possible on weekdays, by request.

The volumes are designed by craftsmen to last indefinitely as each entry is made in perpetuity. Inscriptions and motifs are hand-written and illuminated in the tradition of medieval manuscripts.

Entries may be made under the anniversary of any special date and do not necessarily have to be on the date the deceased passed away.

Service of Remembrance

Every Summer, an annual Service of Remembrance is held at Banbury Crematorium. All are welcome to attend. Details are published in advance and are available from the office.
