Parking measures to help at crematorium


DOUBLE yellow lines will be painted at Rotherham Crematorium to help with the area’s parking issues.

Restrictions will cover the main driveway leading to the chapel and crematorium buildings and on the road leading to the car park.

The crem, at East Herringthorpe, will be patrolled regularly by enforcement officers, Rotherham Council said.

Cllr Saghir Alam, cabinet member for community safety, said: “Due to long-standing issues related to unauthorised parking on site, a carefully considered decision has been made to install double yellow lines.

“We understand how difficult it can be for those grieving and unauthorised parking on site has, at times, made it difficult for cars to pass and caused undue stress to grieving families.

“Parking is already available on site for visitors, and we hope these new restrictions will alleviate any issues in the future.”
