Sheffield General Cemetery - Sheffield

Cemetery of 1836 for Nonconformist burials designed by Sheffield architect Samuel Worth with a chapel, catacombs, a cemetery office and a layout which makes dramatic use of a quarried hillside site. Extended in 1846 for Anglican burials, laid out by Robert Marnock. Essential repairs to the Anglican Chapel have been made. The Nonconformist Chapel is now in use as an events venue. Sheffield City Council has been awarded National Lottery Heritage Funding for a major restoration of the cemetery.
