Simplicity Cremations in Folkestone

The Hawkinge Crematorium has served the community of Folkestone and the surrounding area of Kent for more than 60 years. Simplicity Cremations can arrange a direct cremation or a more personal, attended funeral at this location. Built on the site of an airfield used during the Battle of Britain, Hawkinge Crematorium is nestled among the greens and golds of the Kent Downs. Amidst this beautiful rolling countryside sits the service chapel, surrounded by the Gardens of Remembrance, which offer peace and solitude within a calm, yet charming landscape. As well as Folkestone and the town of Hawkinge, the crematorium is also used by families from the towns and villages that make up this part of the south Kent coast. These include Ashford, Dover, Dymchurch and Hythe. Simplicity Cremations provides a range of low cost funerals, including direct cremations, low-key intimate cremations and fully attended cremations. If a minimal fuss funeral is right for your loved one, contact our team today.
