Bereavement Services

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

We aim to provide a quality, caring service and to 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.

South Staffordshire Council is a corporate member of the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM), and staff hold the ICCM Diploma in Cemetery and Crematorium Management. For more information on this please visit the ICCM website.

Our grave plots are available to purchase in advance or alternatively a plot can be purchased at the time of need. To book a burial or reserve a plot, you or your appointed funeral director, can contact us between 9.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m., Monday to Friday on 01902 696111.

If you have ever lived in South Staffordshire the standard fees apply but if you have never lived in the District there is an additional charge of 10% on top of the standard Exclusive Right of Burial fee.

Copies of our brochure and our Rules and Regulations for the cemeteries are available to download below.
