Benedict Funeral Directors are ideally suited to provide undertaker services for residents of the Biggleswade 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.
Arranging a Funeral in Biggleswade
Our funeral home, and both our chapels of rest, are in Arlesey, which is very close to Biggleswade.
Biggleswade 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 where a very large number 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. Biggleswade Town Council manages two cemeteries; Drove Road Cemetery and Stratton Way Cemetery. Whilst the Drove Road Cemetery is closed to new burials, the Stratton Way Cemetery does have space for burials and ashes interments.
Biggleswade also has a splendid C of E church called Saint Andrews. The vicarage for Saint Andrews church in Biggleswade is located at; The Vicarage, Shortmead Street, Biggleswade, SG18 0AT. Subject to receiving permission from the appropriate minister or officer in charge Benedict Funeral Directors Ltd can arrange funeral services at this and other places of worship in Biggleswade.
