The Friends of the General Cemetery (FOGC) was formed in 1989 by a handful of local residents. Since then this voluntary organisation has grown in size and the Friends has now become the Sheffield General Cemetery Trust (SGCT).
The Trust carries out many activities within the Cemetery :
- Education tours and workshops
- Conservation work to maintain and enhance the monuments, the landscape and the paths
- Historical research of the Cemetery and its occupants.
- Restoring the Grade II* listed Nonconformist Chapel.
Our aim is to encourage everyone to enjoy this historical site by walking its paths, learning its history or simply as a quiet place to sit and contemplate.

Ecclesall Woods Craft Courses: Introduction to Woodland Coppicing
Saturday 11th February 9.30 – 4.00pm
J.G.Graves Woodland Discovery Centre, Abbey Lane
Coppicing and pollarding takes advantage of the fact that most native hardwoods produce new growth in the spring from a stump if cut down in the dormant winter period. The wood cut from coppicing is called underwood and it is grown until the desired size and then cut down again. This not only produces excellent wood for various greenwood crafts but also extends the life of the tree. Course fee: £85 For more information please contact 0114 235 6348 or book online
