Our Premises and Chapel of Rest
Our chapel of rest is located next to our office in Amlwch Port. It has had extensive renovation and is split into two parts; the reception and the Britannia Chapel. The reception area allows the family, friends and colleagues time to compose themselves before going into the Chapel to view their loved one or friend. We have found that by using the reception area people are able to go in and view privately and quietly alone or together.
As you can see from the photograph, it is tastefully decorated and houses an old alter given to my Father from the Catholic Church which he renovated and restored.
If you wish a service can be held here. Both doors to the Chapel can be opened and 30 people can be seated. Many services have been held at Britannia Chapel over the years. We have an organ and means of playing recorded music. We appreciate that you may wish to spend time with your loved one at this point and this is of course possible, subject to suitable notice being given.
