    Heaton cemetery is now the busiest cemetery in Bolton with around 250 interments per annum. The cemetery also contains dedicated areas for both religions and communities, these include Ukrainian, Polish, Latvian, Russian, Muslim and Hindu.

    In the centre of the cemetery stands the Victorian chapel, built in the Neo-Gothic style in 1879, which has been derelict for some time.

    The interior is bare and all the furniture has been removed.
