The Old Cemetery, Uttoxeter New Road, Derby (Grade II listed)
The Old or 'General Cemetery' was opened in March 1843, It is situated on the south side of Uttoxeter New Road 1.5km west-south-west of Derby city centre.
For an exact map location of this cemetery click HERE.

This cemetery is one of the Earliest cemeteries in England, the oldest being Bunhill Fields in London. (Bunhill Fields was open as a Nonconformist Burial Ground in 1685, Buildings of England (Pevsner) London Vol 2 p115).

The Mortuary Chapel was demolished in the late 1940's because the cemetery was full and the chapel became redundant. The area where the chapel stood is now used for car parking for visitors to the cemetery. There are three thousand graves in this four and a half acre site, a lot of the stones are obscured by Ivy so difficult to read, let alone photograph.

This is the first time that I have had a good look around this graveyard, there are so many graves it would be very difficult for me to photograph all of them, so I have taken pictures of the ones which caught my eye. Over time I may revisit this graveyard and add additional graves to my collection of photographs. Out of respect I have not featured graves of those who have died in the last 30 years.

It appears that this graveyard has been severely vandalised in recent years as there were numerous stones and monuments that had been pushed over and smashed. I am surprised that someone has not repaired the damage as the site looks in a terrible mess! It must be unpleasant for those relatives wishing to pay their respects seeing it in this state.
