The chapel in Heywood Cemetery after the fire
The chapel at Heywood Cemetery which was destroyed by fire earlier this year is to be restored by the council.
The entirety of the building – apart from the stonework – was destroyed in February this year, after a fire broke out.
The cemetery dates back to the 1850s with the chapel thought to be of a similar age.
In a statement online, Rochdale Borough Council confirmed it has been given the green light to rebuild the chapel: “We're delighted that we now have the go ahead to re-build the chapel at Heywood Cemetery that was recently devastated by a fire.
“Our in-house design team are making plans for the re-build. We will continue to share updates as plans progress.”
