In 2006, the decision was made by Worthing Borough Council to demolish the Family Chapel at Worthing Crematorium that sat 35 people and replace it with a 160 seater chapel. We at H. D. Tribe Ltd, objected on numerous grounds, but mainly because we recognised that with a large percentage of funerals carried out in Worthing, there are only a small number of people attending. Our suggestion was to leave the Family Chapel and extend the existing Main Chapel, giving one chapel to seat 160 and another to sit 35. Not only would this give the crematorium more flexibility, but also be able to serve the families of Worthing better. Unfortunately the Council decided press ahead resulting in the crematorium having 2 large chapels seating 80 and 160 people and the people of Worthing picking up a contsruction bill of over £1 million.
Therefore we decided to refurbish our Chapel in our Head Office at 130 Broadwater Road, Worthing, and offer families an alternative to Worthing Crematorium. This has proved to be extremely popular as not only is this a smaller, intimate Chapel, but we have large display screen on which we can show photographs and pictures. The other added benefit is by using our Chapel we can save you over £500 on the funeral costs.
