Sheffield is a city in South Yorkshire filled with culture and plenty of countryside attractions on the outskirts. The Millennium Gallery is in the centre of the city with metalwork and art on display from both local and international artists. 

The gallery connects to the Winter Garden - the largest urban glasshouse in Europe, housing 2,500 plants from around the world. Meanwhile, the countryside beyond the city is part of the Peak District National Park, known for its spectacular moorland. 

There are several cemeteries and crematoria in Sheffield, including City Road Crematorium and Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium. City Road Crematorium is a traditional building incorporating two chapels. Meanwhile, the Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium was opened in 1974 and is more modern. A 9-acre Garden of Remembrance sits next to the crematorium, and a range of commemorative memorials can be placed in the garden.

Sheffield Council is also responsible for sixteen cemeteries across Sheffield, including Wisewood Cemetery that has a woodland burial area overlooking the beautiful Loxley Valley.

Areas of natural beauty in Sheffield include Rivelin Valley Nature Trail, which is a beautiful woodland trail located right in the city centre and would be a peaceful, tranquil place to scatter a loved one’s ashes if you so wished.
