This cemetery has two chapels. One in Egyptian style for the non-conformist which has been closed for 30 years and it is in the need of much urgent restoration. The second building in the cemetery in even more need of care. This is the Anglican Chapel, whose striking spire is visible from the centre of Sheffield. It is currently in private hands and crumbling fast. The roof is protected only with a blue plastic sheeting and not at all water tight.
