Volunteering at the Cemetery


We could not operate as an organisation without the many volunteers working at all levels of the Trust. Our volunteers look after the Grade II* listed Cemetery park, help visitors with their family history research, lead many of our free events and contribute in the running of the organisation as members of the management group and as trustees.

There are two supervised landscape sessions each week where volunteers keep the Cemetery park clean and tidy by litter picking and carrying out maintenance and enhancements – all to ensure the Cemetery is a safe and enjoyable place for all to visit. We are grateful to have Sheffield Conservation Volunteers working with us each month in continuing the upkeep of the park. These sessions are a great way to get or stay fit, gain experience through working in a unique heritage and wildlife site and make new contacts in a friendly and supportive environment.
