Cemeteries

Cemeteries Strategy Consultation

Cheshire East Council has produced a new Cemeteries Strategy for the borough.

This consultation will close at 5pm on Friday 14 September 2018

The Cemeteries are places of quiet reflection, not only where people can remember their loved ones, but also somewhere they can visit to experience the tranquillity of peaceful surroundings. Cemeteries also offer a wealth of social history and wildlife.

There are eleven cemeteries in the Authority which are cared for by Orbitas Bereavement Services.
