Hemel Hempstead Crematorium

MacConvilles are delighted to announce that Watford Borough Council has been granted planning permission for a new crematorium in Hemel Hempstead.

We have been working alongside the council as part of the project team since 2019 to create plans for a new crematorium on the edge of Hemel HempsteadWe are delighted that planning permission has been granted for a new Crematorium in Hemel Hempstead. The development will provide the local area with a new chapel crematorium & memorial gardens.

The brief has been interrogated against the backdrop of previous crematoria designed by Haverstock over the last 20 years. A priority has been placed on clear circulation for visitors to avoid mourners from consecutive services overlapping and creation of efficient staff management and circulation routes for effective day-to-day running and operations.  Establishing and maintaining a strong sense of place using landscape and building features has been given careful consideration, as has the sites challenging characteristics.
