“The most beautiful place to hold your loved one's Wake... or to just call in for light refreshments”

Starlight Tea Chapel is a beautiful Grade ll listed building. Built in 1855-1856 the Non-Conformist Chapel stood proudly within the grounds of Colchester Crematorium and Cemetery, surrounded by nature at its best.

It was de-commissioned from Chapel status approximately 45 years ago. During this time the Chapel stood empty for many years and was then used by the Cemetery Gardeners to keep the roses in until it was leased and opened to become a Tea Room.

Our location makes us a very popular venue for Wakes and Celebration of Life gatherings. We offer four Wake Packages which start at £8.75 per person.

We are very fortunate to have the support of many of the local funeral directors who are happy to recommend us.

At the Tea Room, we offer hot & cold drinks, Sandwiches, Light Snacks, and a choice of Cakes.

"We believe Starlight is a lovely place to 'Celebrate the Life' of your loved one passed. A beautiful building with a character of its own............. We would love to meet you"
