Maidstone Cemetery Prices

Our admin offices are based at Vinters Park Crematorium. Reception is open between 9am to 12pm on Tuesday and Thursday mornings only.  We have had to reduce opening hours to allow staff to process cremation/burial paperwork and memorial applications. Due to the high number of deaths at present our offices are incredibly busy. Outside of these hours please make an appointment by emailing us detailing your enquiry so we can ensure the right person contacts you.
