In late 2011, a blog was initiated by the Friends of Walkley Cemetery so that "they could write about the day-to-day issues of conservation, historical research, and natural history relating to this beautiful, semi-wild cemetery on the slopes of the Rivelin Valley in Sheffield (England). We will also give notice of future events in the cemetery, and other relevant events in the Sheffield area." I can thoroughly recommend the blog
