Sheffield (St. Michael's) Roman Catholic Cemetery contains 30 burials from both World Wars, - 24 from the First World War and 6 from the Second.

Burials are on a hill, which has become very overgrown. The Commonwealth War Graves are at the top of this hill, away from the chapel, and all are marked by grey granite headstones. One soldier who served with the Yorkshire Regiment is buried in the cemetery.

We are very grateful to Richard Roberts (<richard.nsw@googlemail.com>) for providing the photographs relating to this cemetery and the Yorkshire Regiment soldier's headstone.
