Ampthill Funeral Options
Our funeral home, and both our chapels of rest, are in Arlesey which is about 20 minutes car drive from Ampthill.
Ampthill is usually served by one of two Crematoriums; Luton crematorium is to be found in Luton at the Vale Cemetery & Crematorium. The full address is, Vale Cemetery & Crematorium, The Vale, Butterfield Green Road, Luton, Bedfordshire, LU2 8DD. The alternative crematorium is in Bedford, located at 104 Norse Road, Bedford, MK41 0RL.
