Birmingham is a major city in the West Midlands. It features multiple landmarks from the Industrial Revolution that reflect its history as a huge manufacturing hub in the 18th century. The city is also home to a sprawling network of canals, many of which stem from Sherborne Wharf and are now home to many trendy cafes and bars. 

Birmingham has several cemeteries and crematoria including Brandwood End Cemetery, which has a woodland area named Diamond Wood, Lodge Hill Cemetery and Crematorium, which has a rose garden for ashes to be scattered, and Yardley Cemetery and Crematorium, which also has a rose garden and book of remembrance to memorialise your loved one.

Birmingham is also home to some areas of natural beauty, such as Baggeridge Country Park in Dudley. Once Baggeridge Colliery, the area has now been transformed into a stunning 150-acre park. The secluded Baggeridge Country Park is a great place for walking, mountain biking, horse riding, and fishing. Meanwhile, Lickey Hills in Rednal is one of Birmingham’s most beloved parks. It spans a massive 524 acres, is filled with panoramic views, and is just 10 miles southwest of Birmingham city centre
