Cemetery notes and/or description:
Following an application to Parliament by The Wolverhampton General Cemetery Company in 1845, The Wolverhampton General Cemetery Act was passed in 1847 enabling the establishment of a cemetery at Merridale and the construction of certain access roads and approaches.

Consequently Wolverhampton General Cemetery was opened in 1850 providing an alternative burial area as local churchyards became increasingly congested.

In time Wolverhampton General Cemetery itself became congested and new cemeteries were opened locally, e.g. at Bushbury (1949) and Danescourt (1959), and perhaps in an attempt to avoid any confusion with the other local sites the use of the name Wolverhampton General Cemetery was discontinued and the cemetery became known as Merridale Cemetery.

It has approximately 23 acres of mainly traditional style graves, and is closed for new burials.
