History group gets funding

Have your say

FRIENDS of Burngreave Cemetery and Chapel has been given £5,300 by the Heritage Lottery Fund to help give local people the skills to research the history of the mines previously beneath the land at the cemetery. The HLF funding and support will allow community groups to carry out activities that help people explore, share and celebrate their local heritage. The series, supported by historian Michael Wood and by a programme of BBC Learning, looks at our history through the eyes of ordinary people.
