After many months of waiting due to the conservationists having to rehome the resident bats, we are delighted to confirm we have secured a new project at Mortlake Crematorium, Richmond. The works relate to the restoration and re-roofing of the Gatehouse. We are also delighted to report that the bats have settled into their new home.

Mortlake Crematorium is located in Kew, near its boundary with Mortlake, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. Designed by Douglas Barton, borough surveyor to Hammersmith Metropolitan Borough Council, the building was constructed in three years and opened in January 1939.
Mortlake Crematorium is a grade II listed building and a rare example of Art Deco design, with detailed and intricate brickwork and beautiful cloisters.

Many famous people have made their final journey from this beautiful building. These include our first female Prime Minister, Baroness Margaret Thatcher, Tommy Cooper, Sir Robin Day, Kenny Everett, Charles Lightoller (second officer of the RMS Titanic), and Kirsty MacColl (Singer-Songwriter), to name a few.

The project includes re-roofing the pitched main roof, upgrades to dormers and minor internal refurbishment to The Gatehouse, Mortlake Crematorium.

We are working alongside Tuffin Ferraby Taylor LLP on this project, and the duration will be nine weeks.
