We have been awarded a ‘Green Flag’ for our crematorium which is the national mark for the best kept open spaces in the country!
This year we have also struck gold in a national scheme, having won a Gold Charter mark for our services. To gain this standard we have maintained enhanced service features consistently across the full spectrum of Bereavement Services. The award is given by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM) which sets the national standards and codes of conduct for all similar services throughout the UK.
Our Bereavement Services are based at the Tixall Road Crematorium in Stafford.
We have three cemeteries; the Crematorium and burial ground at Tixall Road in Stafford, the Eccleshall Road Cemetery in Stafford and Stone Cemetery off the A34 in Stone. We have directions available online.
You can access the Memorial Book (Digital Book of Remembrance) online.
