Situated within Bushbury Cemetery, Bushbury Crematorium at Underhill Lane, Bushbury, Wolverhampton first opened in 1954 with one Chapel, and due to increased demand in cremation a further chapel was constructed in 1970.

Through its West and East chapels the crematorium can cater for more than 20 services daily and carries out some 2500 cremations each year.  The facilities and equipment continue to be improved, with the recent introduction of a new reception facility in 2002/3.

The site is accessible for wheelchair users, and toilet facilities are available.

The scattering of Cremated Remains is available free of charge in the two distinctly different Gardens of Remembrance at Bushbury. Bushbury Cemetery also provides for the burial of Cremated Remains and memorial schemes continue to be developed at Bushbury and other Council cemeteries. Memorials

Bushberry Crematoria is set in wonderfully landscaped grounds, and the West Chapel is a well sized room that is reminiscent of a modern church, and excellent acoustics.
The East Chapel on the other hand is much smaller and I'm afraid to say reminds me of some of the classrooms we had at school.
The facilities for Ministers are about average, a seperate vestry in both Chapels, but no other facilities for us.
For the families there are dedicated waiting rooms with tea and coffee facilities and toilets.
On the whole, its a pleasant location to say goodbye to your loved ones.
