Vinters Park Crematorium
The Vinters Park Crematorium opened in 1962 and is owned and managed by the Maidstone Borough Council. Our commitment is to maintain and improve the on site facilities and services for the benefit of visitors. This has helped us to establish the reputation of Vinters Park Crematorium in the local community and surrounding areas. Facilities

Car Parking is freely available in the two official car parks; Chapel car park is for families attending cremation services and the Main Entrance car park is provided for visitors to the Garden of Remembrance. During fine weather, and on occasions when large numbers of vehicles are present, then the grassed area leading from the Main Entrance car park is used.

 

A comfortable waiting room is provided for principle mourners attending cremation services and for other visitors when no services are in progress.

Provision for people with disabilities has been carefully considered and all areas around the Chapel, Cloisters and courtyard have ramped pathways and dropped kerbs are located around the site. A deaf loop system operates in the Chapel and a disabled toilet facility has been provided adjacent to the Chapel car park. Should any visitor to the Crematorium require a wheelchair then this can be obtained by asking any member of staff.

Memorials

We offer a number of memorials which you can purchase to act as a lasting remembrance to your loved ones.

  • Leather Plaques - A modern form of memorial that are covered in red or dark blue Levant Morocco leather, hand tooled in gold leaf
  • Cloister Wall Tablets - A more traditionally styled memorial situated in an area of the Cloisters . They can be single or double sized and made from a variety of materials including: White Bianco Del Mar marble with incised painted lettering, Green Slate with incised gilded lettering and Black Slate with incised gilded lettering
  • Memorial Flower Vases - Are available for dedication within the Cloisters and the Flower Hall.
  • Coloured Glass Chapel Windows - Depicting floral displays are available for personal dedication and a bronze wall plaque is displayed in the Chapel to contain a suitable inscription. This form of memorial is extremely limited due to the number of coloured glass chapel windows.
Garden of Remembrance

The Garden of Remembrance has developed over the years to provide two distinct areas: the informally designed flower beds and shrubbery areas containing roses, azaleas and specimen trees; and the natural woodside area with its bark pathway which meanders through the perimeter of the woodlands on the west side of the grounds.

The ambience within the garden promotes an area for quiet contemplation and tranquility where visitors can wander at ease and rest on one of the many benches.

There are eight designated areas in the garden for strewing remains and an area designated for the burial of remains along with areas for memorials to be sited.

Other Information

An annual service of remembrance is held at 3pm on the second sunday in June. Family groups and individual visitors are invited to attend the 45 minute service.
