Friends of Burngreave Cemetery and Chapel have been working hard for several years to get the chapels back into use. Now it looks as though the dream could become a reality as the friends group team up with the City Council, Groundwork Sheffield, Burngreave Community Action Trust, Sheffield Galleries and Museums Trust and Sheffield Community Enterprise Development Unit.
The Burngreave Chapels Restoration Partnership is seeking proposals from firms or community organisations interested in moving into the Grade II-listed building. The chosen scheme will be used in a bid for funding to restore the striking 1860s building.
Businesses are being invited to submit plans for one or both of the chapels. Organisations interested in the project can contact Helen on 263 6421 or for further information. Initial proposals must be submitted by 25th November 2005.
