Manthorpe Road Burial Ground

Walking past the unremarkable brick wall in Manthorpe Road, you would never know that behind it lies a fascinating piece of Grantham’s history. Just a stone’s throw from the busy road is the old Grantham cemetery.

The Manthorpe Road burial ground is where most St Wulframs’ burials took place after 1812 when St Wulfram’s churchyard was full except for existing family graves. The burial ground was used until the municipal cemetery was opened in 1856 at Harrowby Road. It is a quiet and peaceful spot unknown to many people.
