n the graves my dad is not mentioned he dug the graves both at rivelin and carmel his name was michael behan and his grave is near the gates it has a statue of our lady on it. You mention people who are at st vins now a totally new parish but not us originals. I think the original church should be renovated and people shuold use it as the main church they mainly travel by car and alot belong to st frances at crospool

Thanks for your comments Catherine. I will look for the grave of Michael Behan later this week. I'm not in St. Vincent's parish so I only have a limited knowledge of the history of both St. Vincent's and St. Michael's. However, I am always collecting new information and your comment was interesting. The future development of the old St. Vincent's Solly Street site is now under review by a surveyor and architecture consultant and a report is due within the next 5 or 6 months.

Thanks for 'tidy' website listing graves. Have found ref to my gt gt grandmother who was murdered (allegedly) by her husband two weeks before giving birth to fourth child. Name Elizabeth Neil (died 9 Apr 1900) grave O42 - large unmarked grave area (paupers graves??)

Thanks Brian. Plot O42 is up on the hillside and not very accessible but I will take a look next time I'm down at St. Michaels.

Easy website to navigate around, and was very helpful in locating a burial plot.

Thanks for this excellent site. I have found a number of ancestors and will be visiting the chapel and graveyard.

If the relatives of William Hogan (who placed a family tree on Ancestry) wish to contact me I can give them information to correct some of the errors on it and to fill the missing gaps. I also have photographs of Julia and Matthew Hogan (my great grandparents) - I am one of Vincent's grandchildren. He visited your family, his diary says he went for tea at Firth Park in 1956 and had a warm welcome.

Just to reinforce what others have said, thank you Martin Fenwick for your prompt response and for the depth of research you did in assisting me to locate the graves which I couldn't find and the one which I thought had had its stone removed!

Thank you so much for this wonderful site and resource. I am writing a history of the Daughters of Charity in Britain (commissioned by them) and so came across the site in my researches on their work in Sheffield. I found the number of infant deaths and pauper burials a very moving reminder of poverty and hardship in the Crofts community. I hope to come and visit one day to see for myself.

Your website is a genealogist's dream! Thank you so much for the list of burials and location of graves. It would be wonderful if every cemetery had online records like these. I visited this week and found the grave of my great great uncle (James W. Fenoughty) and his wife within minutes. You might like to amend a typo in your records which state that his age was '0'. He was in fact aged 55.

Hi, Helen, how are you related to JW Fenoughty? I am his grand-daughter, and know very little about his family.
22/8/2015 06:43:18 am
Thank you for opening up more information on this branch of my family. This web site is so interesting and Martin's response admirable. I will come to visit but if I cannot meet you, is it possible to have an idea where Q50 may be in the plot?

Hello, can you just help me with what 'union' means when next to a burial record? Many thanks

At the end of April 2018 I will be leaving my employment with the diocese (and cemetery). The work has been very enjoyable and I'm grateful for all the interesting work experience attained during my seven years at the cemetery. Thank you to all that have made me so welcome at St. Michael's, and I wish my successor the best of luck for the future. Martin.
