Agecroft cemetery and crematorium is the most recent of its’ kind in the Salford/ Manchester district. Built in 1903, it has to date, nearly 54,000 internments and since it opened in 1957 – almost 60,000 cremation services.
But lurking near the main entrances – almost hidden from view with all its’ overgrowth is the Mortuary Chapel.
I heard about this from a friend and decided to go see for myself. I could not find much information about it, there is a big surrounding graveyard and I had no intention of getting grave shots out of respect and even left my tripod behind to avert unwanted attention. It is a busy place on a bright sunny Sunday. The chapel is fenced off so I got my usual consignment of scratches, stinging nettles on my arse and muddy trousers! All character building!
It’s pretty much empty inside, but at the rear of the Alter stand the painted cross is still prominent, light fittings still hang from the high beams and all the windows are pretty much intact. The clock face can be seen upon high and the remnants of the floors above were now piled at ground level. The entire place is carpeted in pigeon poo and they appeared very cross about me being in there.
Thankfully I wasn’t shat on.
