Funerals, Burials & Cremations:
Through an arrangement with Sheffield City Council we administer our own Jewish Cemetery – in a section of a City Council cemetery. We also participate in a Reform movement burial insurance scheme that is available to all our members. We are also currently progressing the provision of a mixed-faith area in our cemetery (to allow members to be laid to rest with their non-Jewish partner – in some circumstances).

Reform Jewish Funerals
For information about Jewish funerals (in accordance with Reform Jewish practice in the UK) in our cemetery area – or at other cemeteries – please contact us as soon as possible – to discuss how we can help you.

Orthodox Jewish Funerals
For information about Jewish funerals in Sheffield conducted in accordance with Orthodox Jewish practice – please contact (Orthodox) Rabbi Golomb:
