The crematorium has two chapels, with seating for 150 people in the Old Chapel, whilst the New Chapel caters for smaller gatherings of up to 50.


Both chapels have disabled access, a sound induction loop system and a disabled toilet facility can be found to the rear of the building. An on-site wheelchair is available in the event of need and staff are readily available to lend assistance. Staff have all received emergency first aid training including the use of AED defibrillator devices of which we have one in each chapel area for greater peace of mind.

New Organ Tribute

Following his father's cremation at Glasgow Crematorium in December 2020, Mr John Burnett, an organist, gifted an electronic organ for the New Chapel in memory of his late father, Mr Samuel Beresford Burnett. Mr Samuel Burnett was himself a classically trained organist and it is fitting that his son is pictured here in front of our RAF stained glass window considering his late father's past military service in the RAF. This most generous gift has provided a very high-quality instrument which will greatly enhance the musical offering for families and friends attending services in the New Chapel.

Car Parking

We respectfully request that all visitors to Glasgow Crematorium park their vehicles with consideration for other service users of both the Crematorium itself and of Lambhill Cemetery within which the Crematorium is located.

Whilst we provide two car parks for our service users, it is recognised that in times of high demand the car parks can become full despite being lined off to maximise parking bays.

Given such circumstance we would strongly request service users avoid parking at the cemetery gates, on both sides of narrow tributary roads or on the grass verges within the surrounding Glasgow City Council cemeteries. It is important that at all times and as far as possible service users recognise that there are other users both of the Crematorium and the Cemetery and as far as possible they need to be shown due respect.

Congestion is to be avoided at all costs as it disrupts the free flow of traffic to and from services and poor parking can cause additional and unnecessary distress for mourners.

We would draw your attention to the fact that alternative access to the New Chapel can be obtained via the St Kentigerns Gate on Tresta Rd. By exiting from the rear New Chapel lane and turning left onto Skirsa St and thereafter Balmore Rd, users can help to prevent traffic congestion at the main Western Necropolis Cemetery gate which continues to be the preferred access to the Old Chapel and the surrounding cemeteries.

Your kind cooperation and careful attention to this matter would be of assistance to other users and would be very much appreciated.
