From the M1, or north of London

Leave the M1 and join M25 towards Heathrow Airport, leave the M25 at junction 18 and follow signs for Rickmansworth on the A404. Leave Rickmansworth on the A404 for Northwood, where signs lead the way around the town centre. After about 2 miles on this fairly fast road you will turn a sharp right hand bend, pass the front of Mount Vernon Hospital and drop down a hill where you will see The Gate pub on your left. Turn right almost opposite The Gate pub at the traffic lights on to Ducks Hill Road, signposted to Ruislip.

This road first passes houses then enters an area boarded on each side by woodland. Having climbed it then drops down a long hill flanked by woods. Look out for the Six Bells (may be closed) on your right and turn right soon after this in to Breakspear Road at the mini-roundabout, where there is a petrol station with M & S on the corner immediately before this turn.

The crematorium is about 30 yards up this road to the right.

From the south of London

Come around the M25 to junction 16 where it joins the M40. Take the M40 towards London. Almost immediately you will come to the end of the motorway (M40) and the now A40 will start to ascend a hill. Take the first exit, Swakeleys Roundabout (NOT Junction 1 of the M40). At the roundabout turn left on to the B467 towards Ickenham and Ruislip.

Next come two small roundabouts. Stay on the B467 at the first roundabout you come to (second exit) but at the second turn left on to Breakspear Road South. (It will be signposted to Harefield, but be careful as the turning to the left at the first roundabout is also sign posted that way, do not take the wrong road!)

Stay on this road for about one mile and you will see a pub called the Breakspear Arms standing on a junction. Turn right immediately before this pub. Stay on this road almost to the end and the crematorium will be found on your left, 30 yards back from the junction where the road ends, just after The Woodman  pub which will be on your right.

From Central London

Leave central London on the A40 signposted Oxford. Pass Northolt Aerodrome  (where, apart from the long fence to your right just after the Polish War Memorial Roundabout, the short lampposts indicate that you are passing it). 

Stay on the A40 for around one more mile. The road passes under three bridges, two road, one rail and then starts a gentle climb. The next bridge it passes under is a foot bridge, this heralds your approach to Swakeleys Roundabout where you should exit up the slip road and at the roundabout turn right on to the B467 signed to Ickenham and Ruislip 

Next come two small roundabouts. Stay on the B467 at the first roundabout you come to (second exit) but at the second turn left on to Breakspear Road South. (It will be signposted to Harefield, but be careful as the turning to the left at the first roundabout is also sign posted that way, do not take the wrong road!)

Stay on this road for about one mile and you will see a pub called the Breakspear Arms standing on a junction. Turn right immediately before this pub. Stay on this road almost to the end and the crematorium will be found on your left, 30 yards back from the junction where the road ends, just after The Woodman pub which will be on your right. 

Public Transport.

It is not that easy to get to by public transport. You need to get the tube to Ruislip Station and then the H13 bus from the bus garage outside, or the 331, both of which stop close by the crematorium, either ask the driver or look out for it passing The Plough (Miller and Carter) pub on your right, get off at the stop AFTER it stops by this pub, (keep an eye out for a petrol station in front and the mini-roundabout and get off just before it).

From Ruislip Station you could get a taxi if you wished, just outside to the right as you exit are Windmill Cars, telephone 01895 624444, distance about 3 miles to the crematorium.

If you come in from the west you may end up at West Ruislip Station (Chiltern Line). If so alight there and once again order a taxi.


If you wish to find a local pub, turning right out of the crematorium will take you to The Woodman or a little further along this road you will find the Breakspear Arms.

Turn left and left again for the Six Bells, or left and right for the Waters Edge. If you need a walk and a breath of fresh air then there is a lovely one+ mile walk around the lido, just head for the Waters Edge and you can't miss it.
