Benedict Funeral Directors are ideally suited to provide funeral undertaker services for residents of the Luton area.
We are here to help and advise
Being a family run Undertakers brings certain advantages with it, namely you are assured of our personal touch; total respect, honesty and compassion. Part of that respect is to let you know your options; 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.
Luton Funeral Options
The residents of Luton and surrounding areas such as Dunstable and Houghton Regis are usually served by The Vale Cemetery & Crematorium. The full address is; Vale Cemetery & Crematorium, The Vale, Butterfield Green Road, Luton, Bedfordshire, LU2 8DD. Whilst Luton Crematorium is older than some modern Crematoriums such as the one in Stevenage, it is very well maintained and presented. An alternative crematorium is Bedford Crematorium, located at 104 Norse Road, Bedford, MK41 0RL, for families requiring a slightly larger facility than that offer at 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. Luton offers burials at; The Vale, Butterfield, Hitchin Road, Luton, LU2 8DD.
There are numerous churches and places of religious worship in Luton.
St. Marys Church which stands opposite the Luton Arndale Shopping Centre (also known as The Mall) is steeped in history. The cemetery known as Luton Church Cemetery was opened in 1854. Located in the centre of Luton it now covers most of St. Anne’s Hill. Plots for both internment of Ashes and Burials are available. Contact us for further details.
Other places of worship include;
Stopsley Baptist Church in St. Thomas Road, Luton, LU2 7XP,
