The burial ground was used by the Manchester Society of Friends from 1796 to 1856. It was situated beside the Mount Street meeting house. The 1849 Ordnance Survey map shows that it extends along the side of the building with a substantial wall surrounding it to deter grave robbers. The remains of some 600 Friends rest here. It has been covered over and now serves as a parking lot.

The burial registers are on microfilm at the Manchester Central Library.
