Trafford Council to open coffee house at Altrincham Crematorium

By David Prior at

Trafford Council is a trial a mobile coffee house at Altrincham Crematorium.

Visitors will soon be able to benefit from a “pleasant place to sit and reflect” while enjoying a hot drink and the chance to chat with others.

The new facility will be open between 10am and 3pm, five days a week.

Executive Councillor Laura Evans said: “We have many hundreds of visitors every week and have recognised, and listened to their feedback.

“Whilst it is a crematorium, it’s also a beautiful and peaceful setting on the fringes of National Trust land for anyone who wants to take time out, so is not restricted to just visitors of the site.”

If the trial is a success, the Council hopes to make it a more permanent feature at the Whitehouse Lane crematorium.
