Disbursements £1087 (third party payments paid on your behalf) which includes:

  • All Doctors' fees paid on your behalf (£82). If referred to the Coroner, deduct £82.

Woodvale Crematorium, Brighton - general information


Built originally in 1856 and refurbished most recently in 2013, Woodvale crematorium is situated in a residential area close to the centre of Brighton.

Woodvale Crematorium

Woodvale Crematorium in Brighton is set within many acres of cemetery and as well as having a first class music system, they are able to set your photographs to music to play a visual tribute on the TV screen.

There are two chapels, the North Chapel and South Chapel which are either side of the main crematorium building and which both seat approximately 80 people. Unlike the South Chapel, The North Chapel is consecrated and features a stained-glass window and altar.

The Woodvale Crematorium and chapels are located in 20 acres of cemetery. The area around the chapels has been landscaped with lawns, waterfall and stream, flower beds and rockeries, to provide a peaceful environment for funerals.

The North and South Chapels are adjacent to the crematorium building and located approximately quarter of a mile up the drive from the main Lewes Road gates. 

Woodvale's main entrance is located about a mile from the city centre, on the Lewes Road (A270), Brighton, on the side of the road headed towards the city centre. Unless you need the Extra-Mural chapel, use the main gate. There is sign-posting from all directions. A useful landmark near the main entrance is a yellow painted public house called The Gladstone. A Sainsbury's supermarket is opposite.

The Extra-Mural Chapel, which is also used for services sometimes, is in the Extra-Mural Cemetery and cannot be accessed from the main Woodvale gate. There is a separate sign posted gate earlier up the road, opposite the BP petrol station.

The gardens are open 365 days a year.
