All events will be held at Wardsend Cemetery unless otherwise stated. The cemetery can be found on Club Mill Road at the end of Livesey Street, behind Owlerton Stadium (S6 2ET for Sat Navs).



Morning All. We’re very disappointed to inform you that we have reluctantly made the decision to postpone this morning’s Flood Tour. Although the early snow is clearing there is a yellow weather warning of further snow in place until 11.00 am. As most of you will know the cemetery is on quite a steep slope and the safety of visitors and volunteers is paramount.

Apologies once more and please look out for the rearranged dat
