City Rock Cemetery

November 16th, 2009 by John Wolfe

In my search for more amazing cemetery locations, I was happy to find this video filmed in Nottingham, England’s City Rock. The imagery is very Gothic and the weather conditions during filming were quite appropriate.

According to the Cemetery Explorers, City Rock was opened in 1856. The architecture is constructed primarily of sandstone and the grounds include catacombs (which were never used) built into one of the site’s larger caves. I would love to see even more footage of this location, but so far I’ve only been able to find three videos on You Tube.

A heads up as you watch this footage: The creator has added an audio track which includes some shrill screams beginning at the two-minute mark. So, you may want to keep an eye on the volume level.

    That is gorgeous! I love this one from Scotland. Ghost Adventures went in there for an episode and made asses of themselves, but the cemetery is very creepy with lots of active hauntings and poltergeists

    My heavens, I’ve never seen such a packed cemetery! What I adore about viewing these new cemeteries like this, via youtube, is just how unique and diverse each lay-out of the cemetery is. You’ve activated my curiosity button (ok it’s always ON!) in wondering what other cemeteries look like around the world, especially in Europe. I think your timing of viewing cemeteries is perfect given what’s in your PO box ;-) You should be most pleased with it’s content my friend. I’ll be curious to hear what you think of it all, especially the EVP sounds and of course the energy in front of the mausoleum gate. However, the featured cemetery in this video has my mind spinning of the massive possibilities for EVP recordings. I wonder how many are buried at the City Rock Cemetery…..hmmm, looks like quite a handful. Oh and thank you for the heads up about the screaming… unnecessary in the video so thank you for the warning my friend :-)

    Thanks for the link — off to check it out now, since I never saw that episode of Ghost Adventures.


    Speaking of layouts, to me, it’s amazing how many plots there are in City Rock. It would seem, to fit that many into those cramped quarters, a lot of plots would have to be on top of one another or else they are buried in an almost vertical manner.

    Definitely looking forward to your package. I should be heading to the PO Box very soon. I’ll let you know once I get it.

    Not much room for error when planting someone new there! Looks like a scene out of Cemetery Man. Wonder how many of my relatives are buried in that cemetery.

    Wow. I wish I could come up with something much more prolific to describe my opinion, but I can’t… just….. Wow….

    It’s interesting to see how they have tried to pack as many plots into a small area as possible. I could see that practice in this day and age with greed being the driving force, but it seems they would have spread out a bit more back then. Very cool about your last name! Do you know of any specifics when it comes to your genealogical ties to Nottingham?


    These videos of old European cemeteries affect me in the same way.
