THE  NEW  CEMETERY

 

In 1863 it was found desirable, on account of the limited space in the church-yard, to make a Cemetery for the district of High Harrogate. A suitable piece of ground was purchased, and two handsome chapels erected at a cost, including the ground, of about 3,000. 

The architect of the building was C S Sorby, Esq., of London, and the grounds have been laid out by a landscape gardener.

The situation is a little West of the line of railway where it crosses the Skipton Road; the ground slopes towards the town, and presents a beautiful view from every part of it. The spires of the two chapels form an attractive feature in the landscape when viewed from certain positions in High and Low Harrogate.
