Crematorium revamp work

A MAJOR refurbishment programme is taking place at Sheffield's Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium involving installation of three new cremators to meet higher environmental standards.

Work starts at the site on Monday January 31, and involves extending the building.

It is expected to take around 40 weeks to complete.

The nearby cemetery chapel at Abbey Lane is being up-graded to cater for funeral services while the work takes place, but the number of services held each day will need to be restricted.
