Most of the 3,500 headstones in the cemetery are simple monuments, though a few are highly ornamental, with fine sculpture and statuary.
Nine are listed Grade II, of historical or architectural importance, and there are 38 war graves. Several of Cambridge’s most renowned Victorian residents are buried in the cemetery, including shopkeeper Robert Sayle and wood and stone carver James Rattee. Some of the gravestones are tended regularly, though others have unfortunately been damaged by weather, neglect or vandalism.
