Monumental & Memorial Masons
Silverdale Cemetery was opened on 3 May 1886 and is managed from the Keele Cemetery Office.
There are new, re-open and cremated remains grave spaces available at Silverdale Cemetery.
There is a standpipe for water, information boards, recycling bins, seating and a covered seating area in the grounds.
There is vehicle access to the main driveway.
A memorial can be erected on a grave in all borough cemeteries in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
The memorial must be an upright headstone type or vase - kerb sets and large memorials are no longer allowed - and all memorials are subject to council regulations and the National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM) code of practice. All memorials, including vases, are restricted to a minimum and maximum size.
Temporary wooden crosses are allowed on graves.
Rogers Masonry will help you choose a memorial and complete the application forms that will need to be signed by the grave owner(s). It will then be submitted to the cemetery office for approval and once the application has been approved, a permit will be issued and the stone can be installed.
A memorial cannot be erected on a grave for a minimum of six months after a burial has taken place. However, cremated remains graves are exempt from this settlement period as those memorials are fitted onto a stone slab.
Cemetery Plans and Statutory Registers
Plans giving the location of all graves, are kept at Keele Cemetery and can be viewed by appointment during office hours free of charge.
