Funeral service

The Bolton Municipal Funeral Service is designed to provide professional standards at a reasonable cost.

The Service is available to people from the Borough who are to be cremated at Overdale or buried in a Bolton Council cemetery. All possible help will also be given to those who need to arrange a funeral outside the limits of the Borough.

Special arrangements are available for the Muslim population, where burials can take place in the Muslim area of Heaton Cemetery, immediately after death, at weekends or Bank Holidays in line with the requirements of the Muslim Faith.
