The way we say goodbye has a significant impact on our ability to move on and live with grief. In our carefully designed building, with its relaxed setting and stunning views, we can give you the time you need to reflect and remember.
Information for Families
The car park accommodates 154 cars, including 8 disabled parking bays.
On arrival, family and friends can gather in the comfortable, stylishly furnished, waiting room or take the opportunity to sit in the calm of our Garden of Remembrance.
Our webcasting system is fully automated, and an increasingly popular option for those who cannot attend the service in person. The webcast will be made available to view on-line for 7 days following the date of the service.
Large screens allow you to show photographs and videos of your life together, your funeral director will guide you through the options.
Whilst many are happy to use a funeral as closure, others prefer to keep the memory alive. Your service can be recorded to keep as a download link via email, on DVD, or USB stick.
We can source any music that has been made commercially available for your ceremony and play it through a state-of-the-art media system. Just let your funeral director know your choices.
When you lose someone, who is central to your life, it is only fitting they should rest front and centre of the Ceremony Hall when you meet to celebrate their life.
The ceremony hall seats 154 guests and has a large picture window wall framing views across to the majestic mountain peaks of the Isle of Arran. A further 80 people can follow the service on screens in our indoor waiting area.
Absolutely! We are happy to work with you to dress the Ceremony Hall in a way that honours the life and passions of your loved one. We can place important memorabilia, photographs, flags, artwork etc. within the Hall and our creative team are happy to help if you would like some inspiration about a theme for the funeral or what to do with floral arrangements after the service.
Of course you can. Pets are part of the family and their grief shouldn’t be forgotten.
There are toilets in the waiting area, including a disabled toilet.
We understand how difficult families find it as the curtain closes. You will see something very different at Clyde Coast and Garnock Valley Crematorium. Our delicate, translucent voiles gently wrap around the coffin, no doors, no noise. If you still choose not to do this, that’s fine, we understand.
Your flowers will be displayed around our pond as you exit the ceremony hall. We will care for them for a week, but we invite you to collect them if you want to enjoy them elsewhere.
Our Ceremony Hall has an induction loop for the hard of hearing and we can accommodate those with special mobility requirements throughout every room.
We allow a full hour between services giving you plenty of time to gather, hold an appropriate ceremony and say your goodbyes before departing. There is no feeling of hurry and fluster. If you want, further time can be allocated.
