Wyre Forest’s Crematorium close to completion

Published by in English ·

WYRE Forest’s new cemetery and crematorium is expected to open later this year.

Work started on the £4.2 million development in June last year and is due to be completed by late summer.

Wyre Forest District Council earmarked the site on the A451 between Kidderminster and Stourport to create the new cemetery in its 2004 local plan, as the current one in Park Lane was nearing capacity.

The district council said the new development, which lies on the plateaux above and next to the River Stour valley, had been “designed and developed sensitively with attention to detail in an attractive setting on the edge of the Stour Valley”.

It will be set in 23 acres of landscaped gardens and will have full burial and crematoria facilities, with a chapel of rest.

The modern buildings’ surrounding green landscape will feature wild flowers and grasses, rockeries and a pond with a wooden bridge. Access to the buildings will be through a tree-lined avenue.

The site has been developed by West Midlands company, Dignity which was awarded the design, build and management contract for the facility following a competitive selection process. It will operate the facility on behalf of the district council.

The new building has been designed by local architects, Howl Associates to meet the different needs of bereaved people, regardless of faith or belief.

The chapel can be adapted to ensure that a fitting environment will be provided for any type of funeral.

Nearest and dearest numbed by loss of Amy Winehouse

Published by in English ·
Why did they stand aside and let it happen? Where were the parents when she needed them most? Why didn't management intervene? It's the grieving curve, as a doctor will tell you, and blame is a huge part of the process. But Mitch Winehouse eloquently put all that misplaced criticism and wayward speculation to rest at his daughter's funeral yesterday. During his eulogy in Edgware, at the crematorium in Golders Green, followed by a gathering at Southgate Synagogue, he handled himself with dignity and class. He held back his emotions as the day he feared for the past five years finally arrived.
