further to your report regarding the Sculcoates Graveyard , I can tell you that it is now open (as at 27/07/08) although there is a padlock on the gate it is not locked. I have had reason to visit recently and in spite of the overgrown condition I was able to find a grave I was looking for.

Thanks, that's good to know, maybe it was temporarily closed
while they checked or repaired any damage from last years flood.

According to his birth certificate my grandfather was born in Sculcoates workhouse 162 Beverley road in February 1901 my great grandmother his mother was at the time was a widow (I cant find any workhouse records) but when the census took place a month later his mother was back living with her parents (granddad not listed) she eventually moved and remarried and my granddad was brought up by her 2nd husband. I understand the shame attached to these circumstances in those days but we are wondering if her family wouldn't have her at home for the birth or if she went to the workhouse for medical assistance Any thoughts

Hi
I am a volunteer at the Sculcoates Northern Cemetery and it has been recognised as part of a green wildlife corridor running through Hull with a high score for biodiversity. It has been renovated by the Sculcoates Neighbourhood Association and Friends of the Earth, among others. It is open to the public and the gates or not locked even though they look like they might be  :o
On Saturday we had an event day where members of the public and other organisations like the local family history group attended to share information about relatives that may have been buried there.
Certain graves have been identified by members of the public and a path to those graves have been cut through the vegetation. Unattended graves will be maintained as a managed wildlife area.
It really is a beautiful place to visit (I think) but a large project nonetheless and hopefully in time the litter ridden, overgrown cemetery on the south side will get the same treatment.
Here is a link to the Family History Group in the area if anyone would like any more information.
http://www.sculcoatesneighbourhoodassociation.co.uk/SNA/Family_History_Group.html
and as my interest is more directed at the wildlife side of things I have created a website to focus on that.

Totally agree it's almost a world of it's own. 
I paid a brief visit yesterday and though it was warm and sunny I think I'll take someone with me next time, though I was surprised by how well some of the headstones have stood the test of time.

I doubt anyone who died in the workhouse would have a gravestone.
