Telford Crematorium
Telford Crematorium is a privately owned facility and opened its doors on Monday, 24th January 2000.

The crematorium chapel is different from the majority around the country with its high ceiling and complete wall of glass overlooking natural pools and gardens.

It will seat one hundred and fifty people with ample standing room for larger numbers of mourners.  The individual chair type seating was specifically chosen to accommodate everyone whether they are fully mobile or use a wheel chair.  No one need ever feel that they are not fully included. Two sets of curtains surround the catafalque, a fine white inner voile and heavy silver grey velvet outer. One or both or non can be used dependent upon the wishes of the family. The crematorium was short listed for the National R.I.B.A Sterling Prize Award 2000 and was a one of the winners in the West Midlands Category.In addition it was awarded the regional Master Builder of the Year Award 2000 and in 2001 won the regional Civic Trust Award.

A full sound system has been installed to ensure CD's or tapes can be played and a traditional organ is also available.  The crematorium arranges organists and they are all highly accomplished musicians.

Due to the kindness of one of the local funeral directors a secure donation box is available for those who chose not to have floral tributes but instead wish to make a donation to a particular charity. 
   

Various types of memorialisation are available within the crematorium building, Wall Plaques and the traditional Book of Remembrance. The Gardens of Rest cover an area of approximately 15 acres and although not fully established will become over the next few years, a natural woodland site sympathetic to the surrounding environment.

Anyone who has misgiving about cremation or using Telford Crematorium for the service of a loved one and perhaps, would like to come to see for themselves the facilities which are available, please contact the crematorium office. The staff will gladly show you around.
