Bradwell is a suburb and council ward in the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire. According to the 2001 Census, it had a population of 6,365, increasing to 6,403 at the 2011 Census.

The suburb contains Bradwell Crematorium, in Chatterley Close. It was built by the Newcastle Borough Council, who still own the facility, and officially opened in February 1965. It is in 12 acres of landscaped grounds which include two fishponds near the chapel area. Most of the present landscaping development began in 1993 on what was previously open field, to create a series of twelve gardens of remembrance (one for each month of the year). The Council regularly enters the grounds as part of its contribution to the Britain in Bloom Competition.[2]
