Ashley the Worthing Crematorium Cat
(added 28th June 2018)

Dear Friends,

Ashley the Worthing Crematorium Cat - sitting

I am writing to let you know that Ashley the cat sadly passed away yesterday. He was an elderly cat and was very poorly.

After a check up with the vet. I was told that he only had a couple of days left in him and the kindest thing to do would be to put him to sleep. He died peacefully in my arms.

We are thinking about putting on a small service for Ashley. Please email me or pop into the office to let me know if you would be interested in attending.

We would like to gather your pictures and stories about Ashley to help us remember him.

Our email is

Ashley was about 16 years old. He had lived/visited the Crematorium all of that time. We are uncertain of his origin, other than he decided to make the Crematorium his home, he was an outdoor cat. He is already very much missed by all of us here. He provided a significant amount of comfort to our bereaved visitors.

Worthing Crematorium Building Works
(added 16th April 2018)

Muntham Chapel interior

This is an important year for Worthing Crematorium. 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the Crematorium in our community. This important community asset needs to remain user-friendly and attractive for future generations.

The works start will start soon. This is our schedule for the next three months:

23rd April to 4th May 2018:

Temporary accommodation and the works compound will be installed. A restricted schedule of services will continue to take place at the Muntham Chapel. These will be located on the grassed area in front of the Muntham Chapel.

During the works Worthing Crematorium will carry out a trial of accepting direct cremations through the Kingswood Chapel after 4:30pm from Monday to Thursday.

8th May to 3rd August 2018:

The Muntham Chapel will be closed until the completion of the works. The works will be limited to quiet times and out of hours work to limit the impact on the services.

Please do excuse our appearance during the works. The team at Worthing Crematorium will do everything possible to make sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible.

If you do have any concerns, please contact:
