Norse Road Crematorium and Cemetery

Norse Road Crematorium is located at the same site as Norse Road Cemetery.

The Cemetery Complex
104 Norse Road
MK41 0RL

The chapel has several interesting features and can easily accommodate up to 150 mourners. The crematorium has toilet facilities, along with hot and cold drink dispenser.

Garden of Remembrance 

The Garden of Remembrance is divided into four seasons of the year. Cremated remains may be interred in any season of the year if bereaved families wish. However it is usual for the cremated remains to be interred in the season of the death. The gardens are designed to be at their best during the season in which the death occurred. Staff at the Cemetery and Crematorium office are always on hand to discuss any memorial option which the bereaved may wish to purchase.

There are available wall plaques, kerb plaques, dedicated rose bushes with plaques, dedicated trees with plaques, columbaria with black granite fascia tablet and a recent introduction of the base block and tablet, where flowers may be left to a loved one next to the memorial plaque.

Exclusive rights of burial

Before a headstone can be erected onto a grave at Norse Road Cemetery, the exclusive rights of burial must be purchased. 

Denominational areas

The main central section is a multi denominational area. People of all beliefs are buried side by side. There is a Muslim area which is set aside for the use of the Muslim community. There is also a separate infants section where small graves are provided. Again, this is a multi denominational section.

Mausoleums and burial chambers

There are a number of new and innovative types of burial systems now available at Norse Road. Mausoleums are provided for the interment of individuals above ground, with a plaque at the end of the chamber. We also provide concrete burial chambers which are similar to a normal interment, except that the grave is lined by the chamber and part of it is above the ground, where a number of memorial options are available. Norse Road Cemetery has developed a new section with various above ground chambers now available such as Mausoleums, Side Loading Mausoleums and Burial Chambers.

If you are interested in purchasing/reserving a mausoleum or burial chamber, please choose from:

To complement the wide variety of interment options, we also have a Woodland Burial section.

On rare occasions we may find it necessary to close all gates due to severe weather events, maintenance works or other circumstances. However, this generally does not affect services taking place and is for the safety of visiting public.

Parking at the cemetery and crematorium

There are parking facilities for visitors to the cemetery and crematorium complex. 

The main car park is located near to the crematorium building and there is additional car parking to the front of the site - both car parking areas are well sign posted from the main entrance. In addition to this visitors are permitted to drive around the site, parking appropriately using the driveways, in order to attend graves or as part of any funeral cortege.
