From M6

Leave the M6 at Junction 14 and follow the signs for the A513 (Uttoxeter).

Pass the Primepoint 14 Industrial Estate; carry straight on at the double roundabout (still following signs for the A513).

Continue along the Beaconside road past the Military Base until you come to the University Roundabout, at the roundabout turn left again following the A518 (Uttoxeter).

From A518

Following the A518 head past the Staffordshire University campus on left, through the pedestrian crossing and keep going straight on until you see Weston Road High School on the right.  Just past the school take a right hand turn onto Blackheath Lane.

Should you wish to have access to the administration office only please turn into the grounds mid-way off Blackheath Lane.  For the main entrance and access to all other facilities carry straight on down to the crossroads at the other end of Blackheath Lane and turn right onto the Tixall Road.

The main entrance to the Crematorium is signposted off the Tixall Road just a couple of metres from the crossroads.

The visitors' car park is by the chapel but there are several laybys close  to the burial sites for easier access.  Additional parking is available off the exit road to the rear of the Chapel.

Arrival by Train - Stafford Station

There is no direct bus route from the railway station to Stafford Crematorium; the journey could involve several bus changes. Walking would take at least 50 minutes. As route details are very complex to explain we would recommend the use of a taxi from outside the railway station which involves a 15 minute journey.
