Disused cemetery wins Heritage Lottery support

The Friends of Zion Graveyard heritage group are aiming to save the old burial site in Attercliffe where victorian philanthropist and anti-slavery campaigner Mary Anne Rowson is among those interred. The disused ground was put on sale with the prospect that the memorial stones of at least 58 graves could be moved and the land used as a car park instead. The heritage group plan to reopen the site to the public. Azz Mohammed reports for Sheffield Live!
