Funeral routes in the royal town of Sutton Coldfield


If you are unfortunately having to arrange a funeral in the royal town of Sutton Coldfield, there are several venues and options available to you. May this be for a religious or non-religious service before the cremation or burial, or a reception/wake for following the funeral itself.

No matter what tribute and final journey you would like for your loved one, in the royal town of Sutton Coldfield you will be able to find a fitting send off.


As Sutton Coldfield Funeral Directors, our team have been conducting funerals in the local area for over 16 years, from the simplest of services such as a direct cremation through to extravagant horse drawn hearse corteges to a local church then onto one of the local historic cemeteries. Some of the favourites are;

Holy Trinity Parish Church
Church Hl, Mill St, The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield B72 1TF

Holy Trinity Parish Church was erected in the 13th century and has been kept in impeccable condition to this day, the painted ceilings, handcrafted woodwork and beautiful stained glass windows are all amazing features.

St Michael's Church
Church Rd, Boldmere, Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield B73 5RX

St Michael's Church is a more modern church in comparison to the Holy Trinity Church named above, St Michael's was built in 1857 after local services being held in a local school from 1848. St Michael's Church had a horrific fire in 1964 where half of the church had to be rebuilt, the architect did an amazing job of blending the old church with the new structure and its more modern design.

The Holy Trinity Catholic Church
69 Lichfield Rd, The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield B74 2NU

The Holy Trinity Catholic Church shares part of its name with another local church and often get confused with, but it is only the name that they share as you can see from the title of this church it is a Catholic Church and the other is Church of England.

St Nicholas RC Church
243 Jockey Rd, Boldmere, Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield B73 5US

The last church we will mention is our local Roman Catholic Church, St Nicholas RC Church of Boldmere in Sutton Coldfield. This church is very special to one of our owners, Nathan Scully, as this was his childhood Church and spent many of fond memories there. Every time we conduct a funeral service there, it gives Nathan a special and content feeling.

Following our list of Churches and the only crematorium in Sutton Coldfield, we now reach our favourite cemeteries.

Oscott Cemetery
55 Hawthorn Brook Way, The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham B23 5LF

Oscott Cemetery has provided burial space for Catholics of the Archdiocese of Birmingham since 1939. There is a Catholic College that resides next to the cemetery, this has been servicing the local area and expanding the teachings of the Catholic religion since 1838. The dream when building Oscott College was to achieve the renewal of Catholic life in England.

Sutton New Hall Cemetery
Lindridge Rd, The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield B75 7HX

Sutton New Hall cemetery opened in 2002. Only part of the land that it sits on has been developed to date, meaning that the surrounding landscape will remain unchanged for years. Although this cemetery is not far from the local and busy Sutton Coldfield, it is a very peaceful and quiet location with beautiful views.

Sutton Coldfield Cemetery
Good Hope Hospital, The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield, Sutton Coldfield B75 7RP

Sutton Coldfield cemetery opened in 1881. It is located next to Good Hope Hospital and has narrow, tree-lined avenues in the old part and is not suitable for vehicles. Walking into this cemetery feels like you are stepping back in time, its grounds have been kept immaculate and the old buildings are being restored whilst keeping their historic design.

Function rooms

The lists above give an idea of the locations available to hold a funeral service, burial or cremation in the Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield, the list below is just a few function rooms or places where you can hold a Funeral Wake or Reception.

Aston Wood Golf Club
Blake St, Shenstone, Sutton Coldfield B74 4EU

Aston Wood Golf Club is a favourite of the families we care for, the beautiful function room and it's exquisite views are the perfect setting for sharing food and fond memories of a loved one. We always hear compliments about the staff at the golf club, this fills us with confidence and would recommend Aston Wood as a funeral reception venue.

Moor Hall Hotel
Moor Hall Dr, Four Oaks, Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield B75 6LN

Moor Hall is also a gold club but this time it is attached to a grand and historic hotel in Sutton Coldfield. You can choose from a number of different rooms to perfectly cater for the amount of people you need to cater for and with a large amount of rooms available for any family or friends that are travelling from afar, this venue would come highly recommended. Another bonus of Moor Hall is that it is located a short 5 minute drive from Sutton Coldfield Crematorium.

New Hall Hotel
Walmley Rd, The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield B76 1QX

New Hall Hotel is very similar to Moor Hall but instead of a golf course you get a castle. The building is a beautiful piece of medieval architecture and was originally a manor house built by the Earl of Warwick as a hunting lodge in the 13th century, giving it the reputation today of being England's oldest listed inhabited moated house. This theme is still embodied in its decor and is a venue that has a lot of character.

As you can see from the lists above, there are several options available for you and your family to choose a fitting tribute to a loved one. A loved ones funeral can be a time to mourn the loss or celebrate their life. If you speak to your funeral director, they will help guide and organise your loved ones final journey exactly how you want it to be conducted.
