Peel Green Cemetery and Crematorium
Peel Green Cemetery was opened in 1879 and covers 32 acres of land. To date, more than 43,000 interments have been carried out.
The public toilets are located at the rear of the cemetery office and at the crematorium. A number of water taps are provided within the grounds for use by visitors.
Please adhere to the one-way system which is in operation. The authority will not be held responsible in the event of an accident occurring if the one way system has not been followed.
Peel Green Crematorium was also a former old Non-Conformist burial chapel, which was converted into a crematorium in May 1955. Since then over 51,000 cremation services have taken place there.
The chapel can seat up to 80 mourners and a loop system has been installed at the crematorium to assist people with hearing difficulties to follow the funeral service.
A public address system is also in place to allow mourners who gather outside at large funerals when the chapel is full to participate in the service.
Additionally, the audio system has also been enhanced to allow mourners to listen to not only taped music, but also compact discs. An electronic organ is also installed and is available for use during the service.
The cemetery has been awarded Green Flag status and recent improvements have helped transform the cemetery into a first class facility which benefits the local community. This has included:
- Repair of all paths within the cemetery grounds
- Better provision of information for all visitors
- Improved wildlife and bio diversity areas
- An improved memorial garden
