Tabley Hill Chapel is a grade II listed building in the centre of Knutsford Cemetery. The chapel opened in December 1901 and underwent a thorough refurbishment and modernisation in 2021 to bring it back into active use for both the cemetery and wider community. The chapel is available to hire for funeral services, community use and other appropriate events and activities and we hope to obtain a licence for civil wedding ceremonies in the near future.

The chapel comprises an octagonal main hall, an accessible toilet with baby change facilities and a small kitchenette with a microwave, kettle and fridge/freezer. The kitchenette include small plates, cups and saucers, cutlery and glasses which are available to use by hirers.

A discounted hire rate is provided to community uses which includes local organisations, clubs and societies.

To hire the chapel, please contact the Town Council on or 01565 653 929 to check availability. You will then be asked to complete and submit the hire agreement and payment for the booking.

Funeral services have been held at the chapel since it was built in 1901 ahead of burials in the surrounding cemetery. The majority of bookings for funerals will be made via your Funeral Director as part of planning the funeral and Knutsford’s local funeral directors are familiar with the chapel and booking requirements. You can also book directly with us if you are arranging your own service.

We charge a set fee of £200 per service. This is for a four hour booking slot to ensure you have sole use of the chapel for the duration of the service and afterwards should mourners wish. The room will be set up for use at the service and time provided for any floral tributes or photographs to be displayed before the funeral arrives.
