Former chapel Adjacent to main entrance at Salford Northern Cemetery



Cemetery chapel, now disused. 1903. By Sharpe & Foster. Rock-
faced stone with red sandstone ashlar dressings and clay
tile roof. Nave, west tower, north porch and porte-cochère
at east end. Free Gothic style with Arts and Crafts
influence. The 3-bay nave has a projecting plinth, weathered
buttresses and windows on two levels; the lower lancet windows
are below blind arches and the 3-light upper level windows
are arched and traceried. Gabled porch at base of 4-stage
tower which has a square stair turret at one corner. The
tower also has two 3-light basket-arched mullion and
transom windows beneath pointed hoodmoulds, a diminished
second stage with 6-light curvilinear tracery windows on
each side, clock-faces to the third stage with oriel
projections to either side, and an unusual top stage all in
timber which is set back behind a parapet, has gables on
each side and openings with pierced panels in naturalistic
forms. The porte-cochère is castellated and enclosed but for
double gates to north and south. Interior: impressive tie-
beam roof trusses with heavy carving, brattished enrichment,
open-arcaded vertical members and diagonal braces. The nave
continues into the tower separated only by an arch. Three arches
at the east end, the centre one forming a reredos, the
others opening unto the porte-cochère. Stained glass. Timber
pews. Original light fittings.
