Parent Council Activities

Parent Council - Visit to local Sheffield General Cemetery 2013

A group of parents spent a very informative morning at Sheffield General Cemetery, where Spike (who works as part of the Sheffield General Cemetery Trust team) took us on an amazing historical walk and informed us of it's history. We learnt about the history of the Gatehouse, the nonconformist chapel as well as the catacombs, and were given a potted history of some of those buried here - of Samuel Holberry (from the Chartist movement), William Prest (the co-founder of Sheffield Football Club), George Bassett and those from the famous Sheffield Firth family. A huge amount of history at our doorsteps and well worth another visit.
