Thorncliffe Crematorium
Many people only use our service when they suffer a bereavement and therefore know little about what happens. Some people do not prepare for bereavement and are unsure what to do when someone dies; this is made difficult because they are suffering from grief and are upset. It is often advisable to make preparation before someone dies, and our service offers independent advice on all aspects of the funeral. This information is intended as an introduction to how the service is provided, what happens at a burial or cremation, and to give you an insight into all aspects of our service.   Barrow Borough Council manages three cemeteries. Barrow Cemetery opened in 1872, Dalton in 1860 and Ireleth in 1951. All three cemeteries have sufficient space for new burials and graves for up to three interments can be purchased; these graves are now for one hundred years as opposed to the early graves, which were in perpetuity. With the exception of woodland graves new graves can be dug for up to three interments to allow family members to eventually be interred together. It is possible to choose a grave for interment and also purchase a grave in advance; please contact the cemetery office to arrange an appointment.
