Revill Lane Cemetery

My Gx3 grandparents Samuel & Hannah Raybould are buried at this cemetery but it looks as though it doesn't exist anymore when I have tried to locate it on Google Maps. Would anyone be able to advise what happened to this cemetery and what became of any headstones there? I had hoped to visit and try and locate the grave but I assume that's not possible if the cemetery doesn't exist anymore.

Hi Claire,


Like yourself I have tried Google Maps with NO luck.

Most of the housing around Revill Lane, Woodhouse looks to be post 1960s.

S&DFHS booklet on Cemeteries states that burials took place there between 1875-1949.
Have you Googled?

Hi Claire, Revill Lane runs from Beaver Hill Road just above the Badger Estate opposite the playground, Just after Tithe Barn Lane and the former cemetery is on the right. regards Barry

Hi,

There is an old map showing the cemetery on sheffieldhistory.co.uk. Map no is 157 Woodhouse/beaver hill area.

Re: Revill Lane Cemetery

Thank you all. I will take a look for the map. Is it worth still a visit up there or nothing left to see?

I've Googled around but not much info at all other than that Sheffield Archives holds the burial records for the time it was open. I've got transcripts of the burials on a CD I purchased a number of years ago.

Hi,

If viewed on Google Earth, area looks to be no longer a cemetery.I can see no evidence of gravestones, only the old entrances remain. Plot is now a mixture of mature trees and maintained grassland.
