The Trust

The Friends of the General Cemetery (FOGC) was formed in 1989 by a handful of local residents. Since then this voluntary organisation has grown in size and the Friends has now become the Sheffield General Cemetery Trust (SGCT). The Trust carries out many activities within the Cemetery:

  • Education tours and workshops
  • Conservation work to maintain and enhance the monuments, the landscape and the paths
  • Historical research of the Cemetery and its occupants.
  • Restoring the Grade II* listed Nonconformist Chapel.
  • Developing and managing The Samuel Worth Chapel as a new events venue.
