Arlesey Funeral Undertakers
Benedict Funeral Directors are Arlesey based undertakers who are ideally suited to provide funeral services for residents of the Arlesey Area.
We are here to help and advise
Being a family run Undertakers brings certain advantages, namely you are assured of our personal touch; total respect, honesty and compassion. Part of that respect is to let you know the options that are available to you in Arlesey; funerals are one off events and they can be relatively simple or very extravagant.
Our promise to you is one of honesty. We will tell you the truth about what your options are. Be assured no matter what you choose, be it simple or extravagant, our respect to you and your loved one will not change, it’s what makes us who we are.
Arlesey Funeral Options
One of our funeral homes, with it’s choice of two chapels of rest, is actually in Arlesey. Our other funeral home is located in Houghton Regis.
Arlesey is usually served by one of three Crematoriums:
- Stevenage Crematorium, or to give it it’s correct name Harwood Park Crematorium, which is located just outside Stevenage on the Watton Road and rests in its own beautifully landscaped gardens.
- The second crematorium is to be found in Luton; Vale Cemetery & Crematorium. The address is Vale Cemetery & Crematorium, The Vale, Butterfield Green Road, Luton, Bedfordshire, LU2 8DD. Whilst Luton Crematorium is older than the Stevenage Crematorium, it is beautifully maintained and presented.
- The third crematorium is Bedford Crematorium, located at 104 Norse Road, Bedford, MK41 0RL, for families requiring a slightly larger facility than that offer at Stevenage and Luton; (for funerals whereby a very large amount of people are expected to attend)
Of course cremation is not the only option; there are different cemeteries available for burial (as opposed to being cremated). Benedict funeral Directors are more than happy to discuss this with you. Central Bedfordshire Council, which is the District Authority covering Arlesey, has several cemeteries via it’s town councils, which includes Arlesey Cemetery in Hitchin Road. However due to flooding, burials are currently being restricted at this location until further notice. Arlesey can be served by Bedford Cemetery Complex, 104 Norse Road, Bedford, MK41 0RL.
St. Peter’s Church (Church of England) in Arlesey is a beautiful listed Grade 1 church located in Church Lane Arlesey, SG15 6UX.
Arlesey also has a fine Methodist church on the high street, with off road parking facilities.
We offer a 24 hour service 7 days a week
