Sutton Coldfield Crematorium.
Sutton Coldfield Crematorium opening in 1964, was as modern as any in the UK of its time. It is still as efficient and well run today. It boasts 10 acres of landscaped and manicured garden along with it's own lake and waterfall. The atmosphere is tranquil, elegant and very fitting.
Located just off the M6 Toll (on the A453) and less than a mile from Bassett Pole roundabout (A38 / A446) it is very accessible and easy to get to from most locations.
Sutton Coldfield Crematorium proffer a wide range of memorials from: Arboria plaques (wooden plaques with either just an inscription or an inscription and motif), Book of Remembrance, Boutonniere plaques (an engraved plaque with a small vase to hold a single flower or two), Garden memorials, Pergola plaques through to Sanctum vaults (small, usually made of granite square vaults big enough to hold two sets of ashes in urns) and more.
In a small area of the Gardens near to the Crematorium's small lake, (DL1) British born actor of stage, motion picture and television, Arthur Lowe (of Dad's Army fame) ashes were scattered in April 1982. He was 66 years old.
