Crematorium opening times consultation

This consultation has ended.

Why we consulted

We are considering changing our opening times to increase staff and visitor safety, particularly during the winter months.  Before we made any decisions, we wanted to know the views of people who visit the crematorium and its grounds.


People were able to give their views by:

  • Completing our online questionnaire
  • Completing a paper copy of the questionnaire
  • Contacting the council's Consultation Team on 0191 424 7337
  • Speaking to the council's Bereavement Team on 0191 427 3190.

How will the findings be used?

The views gathered will be considered before a final decision is made.

Who was asked to give their views?

The general public and visitors to the crematorium.

Which area did it cover?

The whole borough.

Where and when will the results be made available?

The consultation closed on 31 December 2011.  The results will be made available soon on this website, on information posters and through a press release.
