The crematorium is in Barlow Moor Road, West Didsbury, on the southern side of the city. It adjoins Manchester (Southern) Cemetery.

The 14 casualties of the 1914-1918 War cremated here are commemorated on a memorial stone near the entrance to the grounds. The 177 casualties of the 1939-1945 War are commemorated on the memorial screen wall which stands in the 1939-1945 War Graves Plot, in nearby Manchester (Southern) Cemetery.

The crematorium was opened before the 1914-1918 War and is owned by the Manchester Crematorium Ltd.

We are extremely grateful to Mike Berrell for providing the photos of the memorial stone and the Manchester Crematorium Old Chapel, below.
