Sheffield General Cemetery is a historic site just outside the city centre, it combines a Victorian cemetery with 2 historic buildings and a wooded park area that provides an attractive outdoor space for Sheffield city dwellers. The site itself is run by the Sheffield General Cemetery trust and a charity that’s job is to maintain the cemetery, and run and provide event space for local groups.

Over the past few years, I’ve found myself photographing the cemetery quite regularly, so I decided to add a dedicated page to my website with some of my photos. All shot on film.


Early in 2022 the Cemetary charity contacted me in regards to my photographs, and asked me to donate them to be part of their archive, and to use in their social media and publications etc. Happy to do so, I’ve sent them over 100 photos that I’ve taken. And will increase as I take more photographs.
