Leeds Burial Ground. Huge population growth led Leeds Town Council to pioneer the English municipal cemetery here at Beckett Street. Anglicans and Dissenters had their own chapels and halves of the cemetery. The 27,000 graves, including many 'guinea graves,' contain 180,000 interments. Opened 1845.
