In 1901 Darlington became the fifth crematorium to operate in the Country. Manual records are held from the first cremation to the present day.
The existing crematorium opened in the early 1960’s and is situated within the grounds of West cemetery on Carmel Road North - incorporating two gardens of remembrance. The old garden directly to the rear of the building was used for strewing remains until the end of 1990 when the new garden of remembrance located opposite the car park was first used in January 1991 and is still in use today.
The crematorium building contains a chapel, which can be used for both religious and non-religious services.  It seats up to 58 people comfortably and there is a screened annex to the chapel which allows a standing area for a further 40 attendees.
The chapel pews are light oak with the catafalque situated to the front of the chapel on a raised platform, with curtains to be drawn on committal if required.
