Redditch Crematorium in Worcestershire
Unlimited numbers can now attend funerals inside the crematorium. We continue to provide webcasting to live stream funeral services free of charge. Please contact us about webcasting.
The crematorium has re-opened to the public and our customer service is by telephone or in person at the office.
Please consider the risk to yourself and your family of attending a funeral in person. Here are full details on how we have changed our practices for burials and cremations.
Welcome to Redditch Crematorium in the magnificent Worcestershire countryside. Uniquely amongst Worcestershire crematoria, our hilltop location in informal gardens next to the site of historic Bordesley Abbey has outstanding views of Redditch and the county. Press here for a Google map of the location.
Our chapel normally has a capacity of 160 inside for services, with up to 80 seated and up to 80 standing, plus an audio feed and screens into the lobby and waiting room for when a funeral is very well attended. This capacity may be reduced owing to Covid-19, so please check the current status of burials and cremations during Coronavirus for the latest information.
We're delighted to have received a perfect score as we retained our gold standard rating for a third year in a row.
Upgrades to our step-free access have changed the layout of the site.
Visual tributes including photo and video, music, and private webcasts and recordings of services can all be provided on request.
The crematorium is a fully accessible venue with ample car parking, toilets and a hearing loop system.
The crematorium remains closed to the public except for funerals or burials, and so our customer service is by telephone only. Cemeteries and outdoor memorials are open.
