Overview

A consultation for a burial ground extension to the existing Vale Crematorium, Butterfield Green Road, Luton. 

Why we are consulting

The Vale Crematorium and burial ground on Butterfield Green Road in Stopsley is reaching its capacity in available burial plots. Based on our forecast projections for burials, the site is likely to reach capacity in 2022

The council proposes to acquire land to the West of the existing burial ground on the other side of Butterfield Green Road to form a new burial ground.
