Meet our team
We understand what a difficult time it can be when you lose a loved one. The caring team here at Wealden Crematorium is dedicated to helping you every step of the way – be it arranging a funeral, attending one or choosing a memorial to celebrate someone special.
Shaun - Crematorium Manager
Shaun has worked for Wealden District Council for 25 years and is excited to take up his new role at the crematorium. He's a keen cyclist and you'll see him buzzing between Eastbourne and Hastings most weekends - if only for the cake and coffee at the end!
Lisa - Deputy Manager
Lisa joined the team in May 2019 after spending 10 months working in Cambodia. She qualified as a crematorium technician in November 2020 and was thrilled to become deputy manager in 2021. Lisa’s favourite thing about the Crematorium is the wide open natural space that it offers, her teammates and she loves being able to cycle to work.
Carol - Administration Officer
Carol joined the team in May 2019 after spending 3 years working for Age Concern in Eastbourne. She works as part of the admin team assisting with bookings, availability and services. Carol is a very keen golfer and can usually be found over at Horam Park Golf Club on her days off. She may even sneak off to the golf club at lunchtimes as it's right next door!
Jamie - Estate Officer
Jamie is the newest member of the team. He sees to all general repairs and maintenance to the building and grounds and is also a qualified crematorium technician. Jamie says the most enjoyable part of his job is working alongside the on site contractors and Plumpton College students and staff, who together keep the grounds as beautiful and welcoming as possible. You might spot him with his terrier Pudding or on the cricket field at Heathfield Park Cricket Club.
Julie - Administration Officer
Julie joined Wealden Crematorium in May 2019 after working at Eastbourne Crematorium for almost 8 years. Julie is part of the dream admin team and assists with the arrangements for the funeral services. She is known to ride to work on her Harley Davidson motorbike but only when the weather is fine!
Nigel - Crematorium Officer
Nigel qualified as a crematorium technician in 2017 and takes great pride in his work, striving to ensure each and every service and cremation is carried out with the utmost dignity, respect and professionalism. Outside work Nigel can often be found flying and crashing his remote controlled plane or walking his dog Digby over the Downs.
