Benedict Funeral Directors are ideally suited to provide undertaker services for residents of the Henlow 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 Henlow
Our funeral home, and chapels of rest, are in Arlesey, which is very close to Henlow.
Henlow 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 whereby a very large amount 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. Central Beds Council which is the Authority covering Henlow has several cemeteries via it’s town councils, including Biggleswade, and Shefford. Arlesey also has it’s own cemetery however due to flooding, burials are currently being restricted at this location until further notice. Henlow is served by Bedford Cemetery Complex, 104 Norse Road, Bedford, MK41 0RL.
St. Andrews parish church in Langford (Church of England) and St. Mary’s parish church in Henlow were brought together by Royal Assent in 1997. St. Mary’s in Henlow has an extended graveyard, which is well maintained and in use.
Henlow also has a Methodist church on the high street, with off road parking facilities.
We offer a 24 hour service 7 days a week
