Crem Milton Chapel Exterior

The Chilterns Crematorium was opened in March 1966 and is owned and operated by a Joint Committee on behalf of Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern and Wycombe District Councils.

The Crematorium is situated just outside Amersham on the main A404 Amersham / High Wycombe road. There are white gates at the entrance, which is clearly signposted, and a long driveway leads to car parking adjacent to the main buildings.

There are now two chapels in operation. The Hampden chapel has seating for approximately 60 people downstairs with extra room for standing at the back, and another 24 chairs in the organ gallery. The Milton chapel has seating for approximately 150 people with a spacious area for standing at the back.

Other public facilities for both chapels include toilets and waiting rooms with hot and cold drinks vending. The Garden of Remembrance which surrounds the Crematorium buildings is derived from an existing woodland, to which many interesting varieties of trees and shrubs have been added.

Beneath the trees where the ashes are scattered there are flowering bulbs which come up year after year. Nearer the buildings there are a number of bi-annually planted flower beds and hanging baskets.
