Benedict Funeral Directors is the company making a name for itself as the funeral directors who usually save people money, whilst still delivering the highest of standards. If you don’t believe this statement then phone other Undertakers and seek their prices for the funeral you require and then phone us for our charges. It’s that simple!
Benedict Funeral Directors Ltd are located in Henlow, just a short drive away…… about 10 to 12 minutes!
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, which has recently been up grade is very light, spacious and modern. We have a Chapel of Rest on site and a modern mortuary room. Our branch address is 1 Bedford Road, Henlow, Beds, SG16 6DR. This branch is not far from Biggleswade.
Biggleswade is usually served by these crematoriums;
- Holwell Crematorium ((known as North Herts Memorial Park and Crematorium). It is a fairly new crematorium and by virtue of this it looks good and feels very tranquil.
- 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.
- 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. It has under gone a refit in recent times.
- 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.
