Macclesfield Crematorium
The Crematorium in Macclesfield Cemetery grounds, Prestbury Road, Macclesfield on the Northwest side of the town was opened on Wednesday 17 August 1960, being formerly the Non-Conformist Chapel.

The building occupies a fine site overlooking the wooded Whitfield Brook valley adjacent to West Park. Culverted from Whitfield House under Prestbury Road and the main drive of the cemetery. The brook spills into a pool which is the central feature of the Garden of Remembrance. The valley side adjacent to the Crematorium is tiered with paths passing through the many fine trees and colourful shrubs which combine to give the arboretum an air of peace and tranquil beauty.

The chapel has seating accommodation for up to 70 persons and is used for funeral services prior to interment.

Today over 70% of people dying nationally are cremated rather than buried.
