Howe Bridge Crematorium in Manchester is situated in the midst of tranquil gardens in the rural countryside, making it a peaceful environment for a dignified cremation funeral. Catering to bereaved families across Lancashire, the crematorium staff are happy to work with your funeral director to create a personalised and memorable funeral.
The brick and timber crematorium chapel is spacious and well-lit and is open to funerals of all faiths and beliefs. It can accommodate up to 86 guests, with further standing space available.
