North Yorkshire England
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
A public cemetery to be managed by the independent Scarborough Burial Board was established on 12 acres of property immediately south of Dean Road in 1857. This was followed by the acquisition of additional cemetery property in 1872 immediately north and west of Manor Road. The two sections of cemetery property adjoin each other, but are separated by the northward swing of Manor Road. A tunnel beneath Manor Road allows foot traffic to flow between the two areas. Additional cemetery property was added on the north west corner of the Manor Road section in the 1930s. The Scarborough Borough Council now manages the 22 acre cemetery and retains the burial records (email email@example.com). The Dean Road and Manor Road Cemetery is full with no new graves available, although existing family plots may still be used. There are approximately 54,000 people buried in the cemetery. 9,710 people are commemorated with gravestones: 3,619 in the Dean Road section and 6,091 in the Manor Road section.
