|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Crookes Cemetery lies between Crosspool and Crookes in the city of Sheffield. It was opened in 1906, and covers 29 acres. The cemetery's chapel is Grade II listed.
Seventy of the older graves, maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, are those of service personnel who died as a result of service in World War I and World War II. A central alley runs through the cemetery and separates the consecrated grounds to the north and the unconsecrated grounds to the south. [text added by Geoffrey Gillon]
