Whether to visit the Chapel of Rest and see your loved one is a decision that you and only you can make.
Some people do sometimes get genuine comfort from seeing their loved one at rest, and spending some time together, but no one should feel under any pressure to visit, it is a very personal decision which should be respected by all.
If anyone feels that they would just like some time with the closed coffin, for simple reflection this can be arranged for you.
Should you decide to visit, we will do our utmost to make the experience as comfortable as possible. Our staff will discuss this and advise on how and when this may be best done.
We operate an appointment system for visiting, which we find gives privacy to our families.
