Holding your service at The Halo Ceremony Hall

The Halo Ceremony Hall is located at Poole Crematorium, Gravel Hill and can accommodate up to 120 seated guests.

Whilst its main use is to hold memorial and funeral services, it is also used to host a number of events for the community. If you are interested in using the venue for a community event, please contact us.

If you choose to hold a funeral service at the Halo Ceremony Hall, your loved one will be respectfully conveyed to Bournemouth Crematorium, or to another cemetery location for burial.

A stunning setting

The modern, tranquil interior of the Halo Ceremony Hall is an ideal place to hold the funeral service, or a memorial service, for your loved one. 

Look up to the wooden ceiling to discover the awesome 'halo lights', whilst, to each side, there are stunning hand-painted scenes of local landscapes and nature. With the gentle lighting and resplendent murals, our visitors can be totally transformed to a place of peace and reflection.
