A Hidden Heritage Gem

Nestled on a wooded hillside, Wardsend Cemetery Heritage Park contains a unique Victorian cemetery, as well as a place for nature, art & performance and remembrance. The cemetery is the final resting place of nearly 30,000 people from Sheffield and the surrounding district, some of which are military personnel from the nearby Hillsborough Barracks.

With the River Don flowing at the base of the hill, over the course of more than a century and a half, a wide variety of flora and fauna have also begun to call Wardsend Cemetery Heritage Park home, creating a unique space.
