The state of the burial ground in the mid 19th century was described in an article in the Huddersfield Chronicle (7 June 1851 p 5 col 1):

"The ground affords 566 graves; but since the year 1770, when it was first opened, there have been only 179 interments. During he last 20 years the number has only been 44.

The large space of ground still available bespeaks the forethought and consideration of those who made the arrangement 80 years since. The graves may all be counted by the mounds of green turf that cover them, and the aspect of the place is characteristics of the people to who it belongs - decent, solemn, peaceful."
