Cemetery information

Important Update (30/03/2020)

On the 26th March 2020, the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 was approved and is to be implemented with immediate effect.

In line with this new legislation, The Crematorium and Memorial Group would like to notify all visitors that as of Monday 30th March 2020, our crematorium’s and cemeteries are now closed to members of the public, unless they are attending a funeral.

This means that, other than for the purpose of attending a funeral, no member of the public is permitted into our grounds for activities such as, visiting a memorial or laying flowers. For those visitors who are attending a funeral service, The CMG would like to remind you that no more than 10 people are permitted to enter our chapels and that everyone should follow the Government’s advice with regards to social distancing, regular hand washing and avoiding all personal contact where at all possible.

The CMG understands that this is an extremely difficult time for everyone, and whilst we have had to make these very difficult decisions, we have done so in order to ensure that we continue to provide funeral services to the highest possible standard, whilst protecting the health and safety of our families, clients and staff.


 

Rotherham crematorium was opened in 1962, but the East Herringthorpe cemetery that surrounds the crematorium has been conducting burials since 1953.

Rotherham is a multi-cultural, multi-faith town and the crematorium and cemetery reflect this diversity. The crematorium building, including chapel, waiting room and porte-cochere (entrance), are under going a refurbishment while the site facilities will be enhanced through the provision of a 120-space car park adjacent to the crematorium chapel.

The chapel itself has an organ for live music and a Wesley music system to accommodate a range of musical needs. The crematorium also has disabled access, disabled toilets and a hearing loop.

The existing memorial gardens are being developed and enlarged to offer a wide range of memorials, which can be personalised to meet the aspirations of families and provide a haven of peace and tranquillity in which to remember loved ones.

There is also a memorial area dedicated to the Normandy veterans and those who served in the armed forces.
