Gornal Wood Crematorium
Gornal Wood crematorium was opened in 1960 and is administered by Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council. Set amongst delightful landscape grounds Seasonal Gardens of Remembrance, the Crematorium buildings are of a modern design but every effort is made to retain a friendly and pleasant atmosphere. The council is a member of the Federation of British Cremation Authorities and complies with the strict code of practice, which determines the necessary high standard of crematoria. We are members of the Confederation of Burial Authorities. At present we are also working towards the “Charter for the bereaved.”  Location

Firstly let me say that despite the rating, Gornal Wood is not one of my favourite places to work, its modern appearance doesn't really appeal to me.
That said, its facilities and staff are excellent.
The grounds are always well maintained, the staff are smart and approachable, and have always shown the utmost professionalism to the families.
As a minister, the provisions are good as well.
You have a separate robing area with comfortable seating to wait for your service if your early, toilets which you can use without having to walk around the outside of the chapel to get to them, and staff who have an excellent knowledge of what is happening where.
I can ask any of the grounds staff where a particular interment is, and they all know and can give directions.
For the family, the facilities are somewhat more limited, as there is no real waiting area before you go into the chapel, however there are toilet facilities, and the viewing area for floral tributes is mostly under cover.
The chapel itself is a modern looking building which makes me think of a scandinavian locale.
Its high roof and glass front make it a light and airy building to be in, and it has ample seating for all but the largest of services.
