Agecroft Cemetery and Crematorium
Agecroft Cemetery was opened in 1903, and to date more than 53,700 interments have been carried out within the 45 acres of grounds.
Agecroft is the newest of the city's cemeteries, being opened to accommodate additional new grave space due to the full utilisation of Weaste Cemetery.
The crematorium building was formerly the old Non-Conformist burial chapel. It was converted into the crematorium in January 1957. The chapel seats up to 80 mourners and is accessible for wheelchair users.
Toilets are positioned to the left of the main entrance into the cemetery and a number of water taps are located within the grounds for use by visitors.
There is a one way system for vehicles in operation which must be adhered to for insurance reasons. The authority cannot be held responsible for accidents which occur if entering or exiting at the wrong point.
Essential work was completed in October 2011 to meet new government standards on mercury emissions and improve facilities for visitors. This included:
- Installation of new cremators and mercury filtration plant
- One way system for entrance and exit to and from the chapel
- New memorial walkway to the floral tribute area
- New waiting area to the front of the chapel
- Extensive roofing repairs to existing chapel
