Plan a funeral in Dover

If you’re planning a Dover funeral, you can choose from 3 cemeteries, several churches and a crematorium (in Barham). However, there are limited non-Christian funeral venues in town. The chapel at Barham Crematorium can be personalised to suit any belief, so this could be an option if your religion allows cremation. It also caters to non-religious funerals. Are you looking for something different from a traditional funeral? There are several privately managed sites near Dover where you can have a green burial. The closest are Deerton Natural Burial Ground and Riverview Natural Burial Ground.

Why compare Dover funeral homes?

For example, you might find a Dover funeral home that specialises in simple, low-cost funerals like direct cremations. Or you may find one that can help you arrange a unique, themed funeral or a big celebration of life. You won’t know unless you compare a few listings.
