Crematorium information

Situated within beautiful rolling countryside overlooking the city of Sheffield, Grenoside Crematorium is a truly tranquil place to remember the life of a loved one.

The modern crematorium is set within several acres of beautifully maintained gardens with two peaceful, spacious chapels which provide a comforting and unique venue for a funeral service. Grenoside provides a tranquil setting to place a dedicated memorial.

Our dedicated and caring staff treat every family with dignity and respect. At the service we will be there to help you every step of the way.

Our chapels are multi-faith and we can help you arrange the service according to your cultural and religious needs. We aim to provide the highest possible standards of care in all aspects of our service. The North Chapel can seat over 130 guests, and the South Chapel seats 45 mourners in a more intimate and personal setting.

The crematorium also has access for the disabled, and a hearing loop so no part of a service is missed.

After a funeral service many families choose to hold a reception – this can be a comforting time to spend together and reflect over shared memories of a loved one.

The Clock House Tea Rooms, situated within our grounds have panoramic views over the beautiful gardens and are a welcoming and inviting setting for a funeral reception.

We are able to cater for up to 100 guests, and can provide a wide selection of freshly made food and a range of hot and cold beverages.

The gardens provide a tranquil and comforting environment for quiet contemplation in which to remember their loved ones.

Our fees

We know that understanding what goes into the cost of a funeral can sometimes be difficult for families. We also recognise that understanding the overall financial implications of arranging a funeral is important. To this end we have included a downloadable price list of the services available to you.

It is important to us that any confusion is completely removed to help families to fully understand what the Cremation Fee includes, and what this means as part of the wider cost of the funeral. We have outlined the elements that are necessary to provide a cremation service to you below, although of course we would be happy to discuss any further queries you might have directly with you. You can contact us at any time to talk through any further options and any fees that might apply.

The cremation fee includes the following:

  • All professional services relating to the administration and registration of the cremation, in line with statutory regulation.
  • The use of our Chapel along with the assistance of a trained staff member on the day of the service.
  • The provision of music during the funeral service (please contact the Crematorium for details of our available options).
