Sytch Lane Cemetery

South Staffordshire Council’s Bereavement Services are responsible for the management of Sytch Lane Cemetery in Wombourne and Strawberry Lane Cemetery, Great Wyrley. 

 

We aim to provide a quality, caring service and maintain attractive cemeteries for people of all different religions and cultural backgrounds. 

 

Bereavement Services is based at the Council Offices in Codsall and we have professional staff sympathetic to the needs of the bereaved.  We are responsible for day to day contact with Funeral Directors and members of the public. 

 

In most cases, funerals are organised by Funeral Directors, however families may make arrangements themselves and deal directly with us.

 

Please also note that we will charge premium fees to families of non-residents of South Staffordshire who wish for their relatives to be interred at our cemetery sites.  For further information regarding the exact terms of this scheme, please contact Bereavement Services or see our 'Fees and Charges' and full 'Rules and Regulations' documents below.

 

South Staffordshire Council is a corporate member of the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM), and the staff within Bereavement Services are Associate Members of the Institute.  We are also working towards the ICCM Charter for the Bereaved.  This Charter establishes a high expected standard of service provision, common throughout charter members and helps to give clear information to people about all important aspects of arranging a funeral.  It can be seen as a commitment by the Council to continuously improving the level of standards within Bereavement Services.  Further information on the Charter for the Bereaved can be found on the ICCM’s website by following the link below.

 

The burial records and registers for both of our cemeteries are held by Bereavement Services at the Council Offices in Codsall.  If you wish to view these records then please contact us in advance in order to make an appointment.  Bereavement Services are open to the public from 9:00am to 4:00pm from Monday to Friday, but closed during weekends and public holidays.
