Benedict Funeral Directors are ideally suited to provide funeral undertaker services for residents of the Stevenage area. We are only a short drive from Stevenage and you will find the service offered, and our extremely competitive prices, are very worthwhile.
We are here to help and advise
Being a small, 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.
Our closest funeral home, and chapels of rest, are in Arlesey or Houghton Regis. Arlesey is about 20 minute’s car drive from Stevenage although we will mostly come to you.
Stevenage has its own crematorium, Harwood Park Crematorium. It is located just outside Stevenage on the Watton Road and rests in its own beautifully landscaped gardens. This is modern crematorium and is impressive in appearance.
An alternative crematorium is to be found in Luton, called Vale Cemetery and Crematorium. The address is Vale Cemetery and 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.
We also use Bedford Crematorium, located at 104 Norse Road, Bedford, MK41 0RL, for families requiring a slightly larger facility than that offered at Stevenage and Luton (for funerals where a large number of people are expected to attend).
Of course cremation is not the only option; there are different cemeteries available for burial. We are more than happy to discuss this with you. North Hertfordshire District Council offers burials at Gun Road Gardens Cemetery, Knebworth, Herts, SG3 6EB. Burials of all faiths are welcome at this cemetery, as well as ashes interments.
Wilbury Hills Cemetery in Letchworth is also conveniently located for Stevenage and is very close to our funeral home in Arlesey. This cemetery is described by North Herts District Council as their flagship cemetery and has won a Green Apple Award for environmental best practice. It offers a small non denominational chapel, plenty of car parking and different types of burial options, ranging from woodland burials to niche interments.
Separate areas are also available for different religions.
We offer a 24 hour service 7 days a week
