Cemetery information

Please note, due to the coronavirus pandemic, funeral services at the crematorium are restricted to 30 attendees.

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.
