    One of our recent projects was to get the clocks working again.

    This project has now been completed

    and both the North and South

    Clocks are displaying the correct time.

    A big Thank You goes out to everyone 

    who helped to make this possible.

    Due to unforseen circumstances, 

    the Friends of Burngreave Cemetery 

    have had to defer this year's well dressing launch, 

    planned for Sunday 3rd June.

    It is hoped to create a well dressing later in the year. 


    Our apologies for any disappointment.

    Plans are afoot for creating a wild flower meadow around the beehives 

    next spring and maybe more hedgerow planting.


    Watch this space and join in the fun!

    We are in the process of photographing all the existing headstones. The project was started in June 2010 and we currently have almost 14,000 names in the database
    with well over three thousand photographs.
    One of them could be of one of your family graves, why not call in and see us, we may be able to find that elusive relative.
