Both Burngreave Cemetery chapels have had their roofs repaired this month. This is another step on the road to getting these chapels functioning for community use.

Now the roofs are done, we can set our targets on funding for toilets and a kitchen and perhaps some more benches.

During lockdown the cemetery became a ’nature reserve’, a local park, gym and ‘outdoor community centre’.

There were walkers, joggers and cyclists.

Now Friends of Burngreave Chapels and Cemetery would like to encourage further community involvement.
