Welcome to the Website
of the Sheffield General Cemetery Trust
The Sheffield General Cemetery Trust is a registered charity (no. 1103158) dedicated to promoting and restoring the General Cemetery (located in the city of Sheffield UK) and to protecting it as a unique heritage site and haven for wildlife.
This site contains information about our public events, burial research service, and volunteering. If you want to show your support for us you can join us as a member and be the first to receive our newsletters before anyone else!
As well as attending some of our events to learn about the Cemetery’s history you can also gain a deeper understanding of the Cemetery through reading our books which are available to purchase.
We host many history, nature and craft events each year.
Find out more by visiting the events page – the next two events are :
Sunday 2nd September at 2.00pm

This is a free ticketed event – for more details and booking information click this link.
During the afternoon from 2 to 4pm there will be a history exhibition and a pop up café serving light refreshments at the Samuel Worth Chapel.
Please pop in and take a look, especially if you haven’t been inside the restored Chapel.
