Salford's cemeteries and crematoria
The council is responsible for the management and maintenance of four cemeteries in the city - at Agecroft, Peel Green, Swinton and Weaste along with the housing of the book of remembrance for the individual sites.
There are also two crematoria - at Agecroft and Peel Green cemeteries.
