Middlesbrough has six cemeteries and a crematorium. View the opening times for cemeteries and the crematorium.
There are a lot of things to take care of when someone passes away. Read a simple guide to what you need to do when someone dies.
A bereavement service is available at the Cemeteries and Crematorium Office, offering advice about the crematorium and the procedures which need to be followed.
Alternatively, anyone interested in alternative or less expensive ways of arranging a funeral can contact The Natural Death Centre, a consumer advice charity concerned with dying at home, death care, and preparing funerals. Their advice covers various options including arranging a funeral without using a funeral director. For more information, visit their website or call 020 7359 8391.
The rules of management for cemeteries and crematorium set out acceptable behaviour within cemeteries, and how memorials can be decorated. You can also view all leaflets and information about crematorium procedures in Middlesbrough.
Over the summer months, major groundworks will be taking place to improve drainage at Acklam Cemetery. This means there will be heavy plant vehicles on the site.
Please take extra care in and around the cemetery, and look out for any hazards or risks to your safety.
At times there may also be one way traffic and other restrictions in place.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
