Cemeteries

Cemeteries and crematorium

Middlesbrough has six cemeteries and a crematorium. The cemeteries are open from 8.30am during the week and 10am on weekends and public holidays. Times of closing vary from 8.00pm in the summer to 4.00pm in the winter.

You must fill in a grave application to apply for a plot in a cemetery. There are costs involved in both burials and cremations. View the burial fees and crematorium fees for 2017-18.

The Charter for the Bereaved gives information about what to do when someone dies and choices which need to be made in planning a funeral. The rules of management for cemeteries and crematorium set out the opening times of cemeteries, and regulations such as accepted behaviours within cemeteries and regarding decoration of memorials. You can also view all leaflets and more information about crematorium procedures in Middlesbrough.

A bereavement service is available at the Cemeteries and Crematorium Office offering further advice regarding the crematorium and the procedures that need to be followed.
