End-of-life planning is always wise, both from a financial point of view and as a thoughtful gesture to those you love. This is truer than ever with the forthcoming opening of Brightwater Memorial Park. With only 690 crypts to be made available in the two mausoleum buildings you may wish to make a purchase in the near future.

What we are

Located near Essex on the London/Kent border, Brightwater Memorial Park reimagines the age-old tradition of crematoriums and cemeteries. Instead of the sombre conventions that make up other burial sites, Brightwater offers a unique place to celebrate the memory of your loved ones.

Our memorial park brings you a modern alternative steeped in elegance and style. Drawing from more than 100 years of tradition, Brightwater Memorial Park offers something familiar yet completely new. What’s more, a total of 690 above-ground burial chambers comprise our park, all housed in two mausoleum buildings.

Surrounding the focus of our park are 10 sprawling acres of natural woodland, with 4 acres of landscaped gardens. Truly, there is nothing that compares with what we offer our customers.


Advance planning

Now open, our first building consists of 220 above-ground chambers, which are arranged over 5 individual levels. What’s more, we offer both single-plot and double-plot options to meet your burial needs. Some burial plots are indoor, while others are externally facing and look out over our rear gardens.

The length of interment and plot position affects the pricing. However, we are releasing our first 50 chambers at a 20% discount.

According to UK burial law, when you buy a burial chamber in Brightwater Memorial Park, you have purchased the right to be buried in the burial chamber for a particular period of time. Each chamber offers periods of either 20, 50, 75, and 99 years.

Booking in advance will not only ensure that your chosen position is guaranteed at Brightwater (because of the limited numbers), but it will also relieve your loved ones from the burden of having to make difficult decisions when the time comes.
