Cemetery Lodge. Circa 1860.

Yellow brick with stone dressings and plain tiled roof with banded scalloped tiles. Asymmetrical plan on 2 storeys comprising 2 wings at right angles. Doorway in advanced gabled wing beneath flanking turret. Paired lancet mullioned and transomed windows with hood moulds over in the gable, and similar windows of 3 and 2 lights in gable of the other range.

Canted bay in rear elevation with traceried window over. Gable copings carried on moulded kneelers.


Cemetery Road was built for Hanley Borough Council by Mr Durber, along with the drainage and boundary walls for 1808.

The house like the other lodge was built of white bricks with stone dressings to the design of Henry Ward and Son, who designed Stoke Town Hall.

William Marsh was appointed in 1860 as one of the labourers and sexton at the cemetery to live in the lodge on Stoke Road. Wages at 18s a week for 7 days work and any overtime that may be required.
