York Cemetery is a grade II* listed landscape and one of only two privately owned Victorian cemeteries in the UK. Founded in 1837, it now encompasses 24 acres.
Following the talk in March about the cemetery's history and fascinating facts about the Lord Mayors, military personnel and industrialists buried in the cemetery, this guided walk will, so to speak, put some flesh on the bones of that talk!
