Accommodating broccoli in the cemetery
The cemetery stands atop a hillside overlooking the city and contains some very impressive Victorian funerary monuments in a variety of styles.
It is a notable example of a Victorian cemetery where a number of rich and prominent local residents have been buried, notably mill owners and former mayors.
It emerged that the registration of the cemetery to the property developer had been refused by the Land Registry under a clause that prohibits the sale of consecrated ground that has been used for burial.
In 1987 the management of the cemetery was given over to 'The Undercliffe Cemetery Charity' and in 1988 English Heritage added the cemetery to its Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest as grade II listed and upgraded it to II star the next year.
Most of the western half of the site is consecrated for Anglican burials while the eastern half is set aside for non-conformist burials such as Baptist, Methodist, and Quaker.
The cemetery contains the graves and memorials of the rich and famous, local industrialists, ex-mayors, businessmen, professionals, mill workers and their relatives.
As usual with your restaurant the food is exceptional & the service outstanding.
In the same way that we have seen consolidations going on in the insurance industry, there is never a perfect overlap, but there is a degree.
