The addition of the new Woodland Chapel to the facilities at Westerleigh Crematorium which is also the headquarters of the Westerleigh Group, has provided a smaller, private and intimate chapel alongside the larger main crematorium chapel.
Treske designed and made the crematoria bench seating in ash to match the ash wood used in the other catafalque, lectern and frontal furniture within the chapel. The upholstered benches are arranged in five rows of three benches. Each row is fixed together and to the floor to keep the layout consistent between services. Each bench seat fits up against the adjacent bench seat cushion forming a continuous seat. The seating was chosen for comfort and strength to be durable enough to deal with regular committal services.
Upholstery was chosen by Westerleigh to fit with the colour scheme and upholstered by Treske. Treske offer a wide range of suitable contract fabrics to contract specifications Crib5 covering FR fire treatment.
Treske were commissioned to design and make bespoke crematoria furniture for the two chapels. Catafalques, adjustable height lecterns, sofa seating, upholstered seats and committal curtains were part of the commission.

Treske supplied a new lectern with integrated controls and AV features, redesigned the catafalque base and developed a striking design style for the crematoria furniture. The oak benches with upholstered seats and frontals used the same design as the catafalque and reader.
