History of the Crematorium

The crematorium is located within the grounds of North Cemetery in Strouden Avenue, Bournemouth. W L Clowes designed Bournemouth’s East Chapel in 1927 in a Gothic style. It included an underground area that would later house the crematory. Work began to install the crematory in 1937 and the first cremation took place in 1938.

In 1959, a waiting room, staff area, and toilets were added, with the West Chapel then added in a second phase alongside the vestry, organ chamber and an underground committal room.

The memorial gardens and grounds have been improved over the years, with the most recent addition being a wildlife pond and wildflower area that provide a natural habitat as part of the crematorium’s environmental strategy. North Cemetery has previously won ‘Gold’ in the Britain in Bloom competition.

The East and West Chapels

Bournemouth Crematorium is one of only a few in the country that houses two chapels.

The West Chapel

The West Chapel can accommodate up to 40 people seated with room for approximately 20 mourners to stand. The chapel exits down towards the original floral court with access beyond to the Rose Beds and dedicated Gardens of Remembrance named 'The Glades'.

The East Chapel

Being the larger of the two chapels, the East Chapel can seat up to 100 mourners, whilst accommodating up to a further 100 mourners standing.
