Redditch Crematorium

The Book of Remembrance

Redditch Crematorium is available for everyone to use for funerals. It’s set in a magnificent location, atop a hill in informal gardens and next to the site of historic Bordesley Abbey, with outstanding views of the surrounding Worcestershire countryside. Press here for a Google map of the location.

Its chapel has a capacity of 160 inside for services, with up to 80 seated and up to 80 standing, plus an audio feed into the lobby for when a funeral is very well attended. 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.
