Chapels of Rest

What is a Chapel of Rest?

A chapel of rest is a place where families have the option of visiting the body of their loved one in a personal atmosphere. We realise that a tranquil setting is required on these occasions and our chapels reflect this and are made comfortable for your visit.

We also understand that families may prefer to remember their loved ones as they were when they were living, which is completely your choice.

What does a Chapel of Rest look like?

Our Chapel of Rest is a calm and quiet place where you can visit the deceased with the comfort of your family. There is seating where mourners can rest and spend time, and curtains to ensure privacy at this difficult time.

Chapel of Rest etiquette

Below there are some questions you may be asking yourself about how to act in the Chapel of Rest. As this is such a special and unique place, it’s important you remain respectful.

Can anyone go to a Chapel of Rest?

Whoever is organising the funeral will be able to advise on who can visit the Chapel of Rest.  There are no laws to suggest that you have to be a direct relation to the deceased to visit the Chapel.

Can I talk in a Chapel of Rest?

Many people will take this opportunity to vocalise their feeling towards their deceased loved ones at this time and that is perfectly ok. We understand that you may want to speak to your loved one in a tranquil environment, and that is precisely what a Chapel of Rest is for.

Can you take photos in the Chapel of Rest?

As long as you have gained permission from the deceased’s next of kin, you should be able to take photos in the Chapel of Rest if you wish. It is sincerely importantly to make sure you receive permission beforehand, to make sure you do not cause any offence at this fragile time.

A Few Kind Words...

“I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for everything you have done over the last two weeks. When I walked into Alan Greenwood’s on the 5th November I didn’t know where or how I was going to organise my lovely Mum’s funeral and the thought of it horrified me, you made a daunting job so much easier and were there to guide me all the way until the day of the funeral.”

I can’t thank you enough for your kind words, thoughts and help during this very difficult time. Losing someone as precious as mum is very hard but you helped so much. Thank you for everything you have done for mum, myself and my family.”
