Further information:
We are a small voluntary group concerned with ensuring that Victorian cemetery is protected and remains reasonably maintained. We are concerned to protect the wildlife there, to increase knowledge of the histories of the memorials, to assist visitors, and to ensure the cemetery remains part of Halifax's heritage. The group opens the site on Wednesday from 10 a.m. - 3.30 p.m. Visitors can meet members and receive help with searches on the Sunday site maintenance sessions.
The group welcomes members who are only interested in the historic aspects, family history research etc.., as well as those enjoying outdoor experiences.There are no facilities onsite. Parts of the site are wheelchair accessible.
