Attercliffe Wesleyan Methodist Burial Ground


The first Wesleyan Chapel was built on the site in 1803 and was enlarged in 1824 and 1832. New school premises were built on the property in 1875. Final services, previous to demolition of the entire block preceding the building of the Attercliffe Central Hall, were held in February 1924. The burial grounds were officially closed that year.

Transcriptions were made of the 11 remaining gravestones before they were removed to the North corner of Darnall Cemetery.
