Salford’s Heritage – Weaste Cemetery

The Weaste Cemetery Heritage and Ecology Trail is suitable for anyone in the Salford and Manchester area who’s interested in history. The new content managed website for Weaste Cemetery has just been launched in time for their important November events, including an Armistice Day event for local schools and a new Guided Tour featuring famous Salford citizens.

There’s a large database of biographies of notable Salford people buried at Weaste and also a facility to upload your own ancestors’ details to the site. If you have an ancestor that died in the Great War and is buried at Weaste, there’s a separate database that you can search. The resources section is ideal for those interested in local history and 2011 events are being posted regularly – for more information visit We were delighted to have been involved in the web development for Weaste Cemetery – a truly enjoyable and unusual project for us to carry out.
