“I cannot think of anything you could improve on ,while the day was such a sad one the Chapel was comfortable and bright, the grounds and the setting were so relaxing, we said how much better it was than the north Oxford crematorium, many thanks”
“The location was beautiful.
Many of my friends and family commented on how tranquil the gardens were.
The minister (Father Nicholas) gave a respectful, sensitive, beautiful sermon.
The funeral staff were very supportive towards us.
They didn't rush us, although they had a schedule to adhere to.
I would highly recommend your services to others.”
“At a sad time when bereaved families have a lot to remember and organise, the service at South Oxfordshire Crematorium, Garford was just how we wanted it to be.
There is ample parking, a smart and dignified service room and the grounds are lovely.
The funeral directors liaised between us and the crematorium and everything we asked for e.g. music, order of service, flowers and a photo slideshow in remembrance of my mum was there.
Thank you to the Funeral Directors, S. R. Childs of Witney and South Oxfordshire Crematorium, Garford.”
Our family would like to send our appreciation to all the staff at Memoria. Their sensitive and considerate manner at a wonderful service for our beloved relative gave us comfort in our time of grief. The chapel area is very well equipped with all the facilities for audio and vision. The grounds are also beautiful and well maintained.

“The venue and facilities were excellent. The garden and grounds were immaculate. My only criticism would be that the outside area on exiting the building is inadequate for more than 6 persons, particularly in the event of inclement weather.”
“We were greeted on the way in, a very good atmosphere, the music was what we asked for,every thing went very smoothly at this sad time,we couldn't have wished for it to go any better, thank you so much.”
“No-one wants to use this service, and yet the whole process was made very simple, with Memoria working closely with our funeral director. The slide show of images with our chosen track was presented absolutely beautifully. Great work.”
“A funeral is not something to look forward to but Nicola in Abingdon guided us through it all in a very gentle and feeling way. It was all mapped out for us and nothing was too much trouble, whatever we wanted was available to us. In truth we had very little to do as everything was handled with care and professionally by the staff at S. R. Childs”
“We wanted a service with the minimum of fuss and there was none at all. The ambience and facilities at Swanwick were just right. The recording of the service was widely watched and was technically excellent. Mike Snow (service conductor) did a great job with meticulous attention to detail.”
“I have just spoken to Gillian at your office to thank you all for the kindness, courtesy and calm professionalism we received at my Mum's funeral on 28th April. It made a sad occasion as dignified and easy to cope with as possible, so many thanks. Barbara Elvy”
