Sheffield City Council has been awarded a £3 million grant from the National Lottery Parks for People fund as part of a long term programme of investment to safeguard Sheffield General Cemetery for the future.  Parts of Sheffield General Cemetery are almost 200 years old and our project will ensure the Cemetery continues to be a safe and enjoyable place for people to visit for the next 100 years whilst protecting and investing in its heritage and wildlife.

Why we are consulting

The Council is working closely with the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the General Cemetery Whole Site Management Group and other interested stakeholders to ensure everyone who cares about the General Cemetery has a voice in the delivery of the project. 

We’ve updated some of our plans from those proposed in 2017 and would be grateful if you could let us know what you think about 4 particular areas where we need your input to work out the best approach.   There may be other questions that we want to ask later in the year as we continue to develop.  Look out for other surveys or opportunities to have your say over the autumn.
