Stanton Road Cemetery, Ilkeston
Stanton Road Cemetery, Ilkeston
The cemetery was created in 1863 by a local businessman as a non-denominational cemetery for the growing town. The last burial took place in 1947. It was taken over by the Borough Council in 1968 but gradually fell into disrepair and became overgrown.
After being cleared by the Local History Society in the 1990s, a Friends of Stanton Road Cemetery group was formed in 2000. A lottery grant in 2009 allowed rebuilding of the cemetery wall and a number of graves to be restored, including that of Samuel Taylor LinkExternal link .
