Cemeteries and Crematoria


There are a number of crematoria in the area, facilities vary from old, converted Victorian Cemetery chapels, to purpose built, bright picturesque modern ones. Here are some of them and their contact details.


Just as there are a number of crematoria, there are many, many more  cemeteries and churchyards, some of which still allow burials to take place, some can no longer allow burials to take place, here are some of them and their contact details.

Natural Burial Grounds, Woodland Burials, Green Burials

As well as traditional religious burials in a churchyard or cemetery, we can arrange for other burials, perhaps a Woodland, Natural or Green site, which are increasingly popular with a growing number of sites coming into use in Cornwall and Devon.

Natural burial, as it is often referred, is a very varied  world, but some burial grounds sign up to a Code of Conduct with places like  the Association of Natural Burial Grounds or The Natural Death Centre which helps them with guidance on sustainability and ecology.

Because of the way that natural burial sites are run, some may be more difficult to access than others. We would always recommend visiting any sites before making a final decision.

What our
customers say...

Richard and his team are consummate professionals who supported us at the most challenging of times.

Gary G.

When Mum passed, you were an absolute Godsend to me. You helped more than I could have expected

V. Daniels

Nothing was too much trouble.


Richard was recommended by a friend. I immediately felt comfortable and relaxed. He was a good listener, easy to talk to and his manner was reassuring and helpful. I can't thank him enough for seeing us smoothly through this traumatic time.

Anne P.

I lost my husband in his early 50's and Richard took over with great empathy, kindness and discretion. The professionalism of both him and his team was exemplary, even down to organising the traffic so that my husband's biker friends could follow us to the funeral. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

S. Boorer

Nothing was too much trouble. Everything from start to finish was absolutely perfect, the attention to details also superb including the timing of the drivers closing on both car doors, in my eyes, with that attention to detail I knew my Dad was in safe hands

Lee A.

I cannot recommend Richard enough for his compassion, professionalism and kind and thoughtful approach when dealing with myself and my family at such a difficult time. Nothing was too much bother for Richard.

J Kelly

We can't rate Westcountry Funeral Service high enough for their level of compassion .... nothing was ever too much trouble. Excellent communication throughout the whole process and everything was done to a high professional standard. I would highly recommend Westcountry Funeral Service.

Tristan S.

From start to finish the professional service that we received was excellent. We would recommend this company to anyone who sadly is in need of this service.

Throughout the undertakers were superb, calm, stewarding agents of remarkable humanity... It was an incredible experience - a good disturbance of the heart.
