Customer service team

“I joined Clandon Wood towards the end of 2012 before Clandon Wood officially opened – after helping my husband Simon with the setting up. I fell in love with the concept and loved the idea of offering an alternative to families away from traditional burial cemeteries and crematoria. I help with the care and needs of our families when they come in and a cup of tea or coffee is always on the brew.

I also co-host with George our ‘Tea, cake and company’ which we hold on the last Sunday of every month. This is something I really enjoy as it gives families the opportunity to meet others who are in the same situation as themselves and for us at Clandon Wood to keep in touch with them and offer any help and advice if needed."

About tea, cake & company

At Clandon Wood we firmly believe that providing an environment for the bereaved is just as important as it is for those who have passed away. In this regard we hold a number of ‘aftercare’ events throughout the year for those left behind.

These include our monthly tea, cake and company drop ins which provide an opportunity for anyone who has been bereaved to be among and talk to others who share the experience of loss.

Held in our beautiful glass pavilion they take place from 10.30am to 1.00pm on the last Sunday of every month.

Simply drop in - whether or not you have a loved one at Clandon Wood, you will always be warmly welcomed with kindness, consideration and company.
