The “Friends of Wardsend Cemetery” group has been set up with the aim of promoting and preserving this historic Victorian cemetery.
Wardsend Cemetery has stood on its site by the River Don for the last 160 years. This cemetery is the last resting place of nearly 30,000 Sheffield and district people as well as military personnel from the nearby Sheffield (Hillsborough) Barracks. In the course of more than a century and a half, a wide variety of flora and fauna have also begun to call the cemetery home.
