Donations and legacies

Donations and legacies to the Sheffield General Cemetery Trust are really important to the Trust. They help us to keep the Cemetery’s parkland, buildings and natural setting attractive and safe for our visitors and to support new initiatives. This will be especially important in future. The Trust will need to evolve to a central role in ensuring that the large investment in the landscape and structures of the Cemetery by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and National Lottery Community Fund, alongside Sheffield City Council, creates a lasting benefit to the local communities long after the major project has ended.

We use legacies and donations and money raised from fundraising to ensure that the Cemetery and its natural environment are kept as an openly accessible space for the enjoyment and study of both history and nature – our grounds never close, and it takes a lot of work to keep them in good condition and to continue to develop them for the benefit of Sheffielders and visitors.
