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 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.

We charge a set fee of £450 (inc VAT) for a week day (Mon-Thur) service and £600 for a weekend (Fri-Sun) service. This is for the exclusive hire of the chapel for the full day to enable any set up or decoration you wish to arrange for the room.

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.
