What is The Old Chapel?

The Old Chapel is a beautiful, historic, venue for hire space specifically with funerals in mind – located in the heart of the potteries. We wanted to create a space that was not only beautiful but gave families something that they don’t have anywhere else; enough time to say a proper goodbye. Our chapel will only ever host a maximum of three funerals in a day, ensuring that you are not rushed and can give the send off your loved one truly deserves. 

How does it work?

The Old Chapel is a place in which to hold a funeral or memorial service for your loved one. It gives you the time you need to say goodbye with family and friends before a burial, attended or unattended cremation service.
