Rossendale cemeteries

We have four cemeteries located at Bacup, Whitworth, Rawtenstall and Haslingden. They all have plots available for Catholic, Church of England and Non-Conformist faith groups. Rawtenstall and Haslingden also have a Muslim section.

We are also responsible for the maintenance of five closed churchyards:

  • St James, Haslingden
  • St Thomas', Helmshore
  • Stonefold, Rising Bridge
  • Lower Deardengate, Haslingden
  • St Mary’s, Goodshaw.

We do not have cremation facilities but this service can be accessed in Hyndburn, Burnley and Rochdale.
