Manchester is a city and metropolitan borough located in Greater Manchester, England. There are many churches in Manchester, including Christ Church Manchester, and Our Lady and St John. Many of these churches retained their original architecture, while others needed to be rebuilt and repaired after being bombed during the wars. 

Manchester, and the surrounding areas of Wigan, East Lancashire, and Salford, have several cemeteries and crematoriums. The East Lancashire Crematorium, for example, has beautiful rooms and grounds that are a wonderful place to pay tribute to your loved one. 

There are also many places of natural beauty where to scatter your loved one’s ashes, such as the Peak District National Park or the Forest of Bowland.
