For the last few years the History Group of Friends of Mill Road Cemetery have been researching the WW1 soldiers buried in the cemetery, some in War Graves Commission Graves and the many more who died and are buried abroad but are commemorated by an inscription on their Family Grave. As this research continues you will find it all on on our website where those names we know are listed alphabetically. If you know any more about any of them, or of others we may not already have found, please get in touch with the History Group by emailing friendsofmillroadcemetery@gmail.com

This latter group had not been recorded, and in many cases the location of the graves had been lost. With the help of Tim Glasswell from the local Ordnance Survey Team they have almost all now been located and mapped and self-guided trails are now available in the Explore the Cemetery section of this website.  Please note: some graves are currently inaccessible; of the rest, some may be harder to find at certain times of the year because of the rotational grass cutting regime in the cemetery.

Friends of Mill Road Cemetery and their partners, The City Council and The Parochial Burial Grounds Management Committee have been awarded a Heritage Lottery Grant to restore some 26 of these graves, (scheduled for Autumn 2014) , to make various website changes and to share this WW1 heritage as widely as possible. Some community events have already taken place (see Past Events and WW1 graves) but if you would like to arrange a visit to some of the WW1 graves in Mill Road Cemetery please arrange it by emailing the same address: friendsofmillroadcemetery@gmail.com
