A new website has been launched to provide information about Worcester City Council’s crematorium and cemeteries.
WorcesterCemeteries.co.uk gives city residents a new “easy-to-use resource” where they can find information about the Astwood Road crematorium, chapel, cemetery and gardens of rest, St John’s Cemetery, the Muslim burial area and options for natural burials.
Also on the new website is visiting information for each cemetery, essential advice for organising funerals, and details of how people can get involved in the management and maintenance of the cemeteries.
City residents can also use WorcesterCemeteries.co.uk to buy or renew memorials for their loved ones, including remembrance inscriptions, stones and benches. The cemetery has also recently launched an inscribed memorial leaf on a steel memorial tree.
Lloyd Griffiths, operation and communities at Worcester City Council Director of Homes said: “We hope the new WorcesterCemeteries.co.uk website will be useful for both the recently bereaved and those who are remembering the loved ones they have lost in the past.
“It has been carefully and respectfully designed and we hope city residents and visitors will find it informative and useful.”
