Weaste Cemetery
Weaste Cemetery
Weaste Cemetery was Salford’s first municipal cemetery. Before the cemetery opened in 1857, most burials took place in churchyards. Salford Corporation was one of the first municipal authorities to recognise that churchyards could no longer provide sufficient burial space.

In the Victorian age, cemeteries were considered to be amenities like parks and gardens and Weaste, like other Victorian cemeteries, was designed in a similar way to a park.
