Westmoreland Group, working as main contractor for Doncaster Council, has been rebuilding the damaged boundary wall at the western (New Street) end of the cemetery since earlier this year. Most of the heavy work has now been finished, although a good deal of pointing remains to be done. Expert stonemason, Peter Moore, has taken down and rebuilt all the damaged and unstable sections of wall, bringing it back to the condition that it would have been in soon after the cemetery extension was opened, in 1882.

Using donated money from several sources, including a substantial amount from a local couple who wish to remain anonymous, the Friends will be arranging for new railings to installed on top of the wall in the near future.

These photographs show one section of the wall before repairs began and now, as the same section nears completion.
