30 years ago Mottram Church established a Memorial Garden in a tranquil part of the churchyard with wonderful views over the Longdendale Valley. The Memorial Garden is reserved for the burial of ashes and lasting memorial for departed loved ones.
The right of burial of cremated remains in the Memorial Garden is open to all parishioners and to those whose names were entered on the Parish Electoral Roll at the time of death, whether parishioners or not. The Vicar has sole discretion in other cases.
