Thank you - for helping save the graves of old Attercliffe !

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and to a Big Lottery Sharing Heritage Grant, Friends of Zion Graveyard Attercliffe have been able to purchase the disused burial ground of Zion Congregational Church and save it as a historic and natural heritage site for the benefit of generations to come.

May 2018 at Zion Graveyard Attercliffe, Zion Lane / Lawrence Street S9 3RG is open only for specified events.The entrance is through a small gate behind the old Riley's Shop (now Sheffield Tooling).  For Sunday events we are now also able to open the entrance from Ferguson Street which provides level access.  

Please note this is not the large Attercliffe Cemetery, but it is nearby.  If you can see it from the road it is the wrong one! It is behind a new car sales site beside Auto Start repairs (the old Zion Sabbath School).

We are also organising a full programme of activities to include    

  •  Environment & Gardening group - caring for the graveyard and nurturing the wildlife 
  • Zion Attercliffe Oral History Project -  to collect and record the memories of people who lived in this vibrant community.  
  •   Anti-Slavery Past & Present - fund-raising and information continuing the campaign against modern-day slavery by supporting Sheffield's ground-breaking Snowdrop Project 
  • History Research investigating the historica records of  Zion church and those buried in the graveyard 

New members are welcome and will be kept up to date by email. A membership form can be uploaded here and returned by email (there is no joining fee) FoZGA membership form 2018_04_26.docx
