Cheddleton Parish Council owns and operates three burial grounds in and around the village. St Edward's Lawn Cemetery (shown above) is a five-acre burial ground situated adjacent to the A520 and the St Edward's Park housing development. In addition to burial plots, it has a section for the interment of ashes. As the photograph shows, St Edward's Lawn Cemetery is in a well maintained, quiet and peaceful setting and access is either from the A520 Leek Road for pedestrians only or from the car park accessed through the woods from East Drive.
