Wardsend Cemetery

Background

Set up in the 1990’s the friends group seek to raise awareness of the cemetery and to promote the restoration and upkeep of it as a place of local history, burial site, preserving its ecological and nature aspects and researching the history of those buried there. We assist family researchers in finding their relatives. We do guided tours, attend local family history fairs and release occasional newsletters.

Projects

The cemetery is now part of a long term restoration project that includes not only ourselves but local businesses, Hillsborough College, AMEY and Sheffield City Council.
