All chapel services at Agecroft Crematorium, Peel Green Crematorium and Swinton Cemetery Chapel will be limited to ten mourners until further notice. The council’s Bereavement Services is making the change to minimise the risk to Salford residents and council employees from the Covid-19 coronavirus.

Burials prior to this were often in local churchyards.
If you wish to locate a family member you can write to the relevant office. A charge is made for grave searches and family history research - see the schedule of charges.

If writing, your cheque should be made payable to Salford City Council and sent to the relevant cemetery office. We will reply giving as much information as is held within ten days of receipt of your enquiry.
