Accrington Crematorium

Accrington Crematorium is situated in the heart of Accrington Cemetery, Burnley Road, Accrington, BB5 6HA.

Due to its location, the surroundings of the crematorium are picturesque and tranquil. The road leading to the crematorium is lined with lime trees and flowers beds boasting beautiful flowers all year round with a spectacular display of bulbs in Spring.

The chapel is over 100 years old and due to it's age and nature is an attractive building to hold services with high ceilings, beams and stained glass windows.

The chapel can seat up to 80 guests with standing room in the aisles and glass annex. Our sound system plays both within and outside the chapel to ensure all mourners have access to the full service.

The Crematorium is available to everyone who wishes to use it and is currently used by families from Hyndburn, Rossendale, Ribble Valley, Pendle, Burnley, Blackburn and Bury.

Our services are deliberately set at 40 minute intervals to allow ample time to conduct a dignified service without compromise.

The Book of Remembrance

The Book of Remembrance is situated in the annex of the Crematorium Chapel in Accrington Cemetery and displayed in its protective cabinet. With a page provided for each day of the year, it is opened daily on the appropriate page so that entries may be viewed on the anniversary of the date of death. If it is not possible to visit on the anniversary the Chapel Attendant will be pleased to open the appropriate page on request.

Inscriptions in the Book may take the form of a two, three, five or eight line entry and in the case of all except two and three line entries, this may be accompanied by a badge or emblem of your choice. If an unusual design is required, it may be possible to work from a reference supplied by the applicant. It is also possible to reserve space below an inscription for future use if required.

The Chapel is open at weekends if you wish to spend a few moments in prayer or thought. This may not be possible throughout the week as funeral services are likely to be in progress. The cemetery office will be able to advise you of the quieter times during the day.

Book of Remembrance viewing hours: -

Monday - Friday 9.00 am - 4.00 pm

Bank Holidays, Saturday & Sunday 1.00 pm - 4.00 pm

Miniature Books and Memorial Cards

It is possible to have copies of the inscription as it appears in the Book of Remembrance. These are particularly suitable both as a personal keepsake and for sending to friends and relatives who may not be able to visit the Book to see the original entry. Please contact the cemetery office if you wish to make an entry in the Book of Remembrance or if you wish to purchase a memorial card or book.
