Weaste Cemetery

The Trail

A Grade II listed Victorian Cemetery with six listed monuments within 39 acres of green space. From the inscriptions on the monuments to beautifully crafted sculptures, Weaste Cemetery contains the biography of our community.


With grassland untreated by chemicals since 1857 and woodland providing a habitat for butterflies and wild birds this is a real urban oasis.


Together with Salford City Council, the Friends of Salford Cemeteries Trust have developed a Heritage Trail at Weaste Cemetery. Within the grounds, a series of interpretation panels provide the visitor with information about:


  • Joseph Brotherton, Salford's first MP
  • Sir Charles Halle, founder of the Halle Orchestra
  • Mark Addy, the local hero
  • Four survivors of the Charge of the Light Brigade
