Strange place to have as a 'Tourist Attraction', but we loved this place. It was a bright and breezy afternoon, and a fascinating way to spend an hour or so. It is well kept for the most part, paths are well maintained and make fort easy access. Some is a little overgrown, but work appears to be in hand. Undercliffe Cemetery is is a place of peace and calm and says a great deal about how people were revered in Victorian times - huge memorials which must have cost a small fortune. Sadly there is a 'potted history' on some of the memorials which shows that many men outlived their wives and parents outlived their children, fascinating, nonetheless. Apparently some of the memorials go back as far as the Battle of Waterloo - we didn't find them, but particularly poignant in a cemetery so old are the 1939-45 interments - men of my father's generation. Choose your day to visit - on a cloudy day in February I would think it is a bit creepy

Fascinating place with so much history within, but just looking at the sculpted memorials and mausoleums is a lovely experience. There are QR codes on the graves that have more history associated with them, including pictures (portraits) of the interred person.
We could have spent ages here but it closes at 5pm. The birdlife is astonishing - so much birdsong in the overgrown and wooded areas. The military graves are beautifully cared for amongst some collapsing neighbours...

I love everything about this place. I appreciate that a cemetery may not be for everyone but if architecture and local history is of interest then this relatively unique place has it in spades.

Very interesting visit . Impressive and decorative grave stones. I liked the overgrown parts as I imagined them being a shelter for wildlife and I feel a manicured look would spoil the atmosphere. I noticed there was still a problem with Asian youths riding round on bikes far too fast, too near and doing wheelies near us. This made me feel very sad and doesn’t help with racial harmony.

Undercliffe Cemetery is amazing, I have never seen a larger one with so many magnificent stones. I know it's an ongoing thing and relies on donations but when it's been cleaned up and all the graves are restored to their former glory it will be even more amazing. It will take a long time for this to happen. On a more sombre note having walked the majority of the Cemetery I find that dog owners who walk their dogs in there and leave their dog mess on paths and grass are disgusting and they ought to be banned from walking dogs in there.

A party of thirteen of us had a fascinating guided tour of this amazing place, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and amusing and we all enjoyed the tour immensely. We had a warm welcome at the lodge when we arrived and after a background talk about the history of the cemetry it was out into the icy February breeze for our tour! Well worth going even on such a chilly day - I'm sure we will be planning a return visit in warmer weather. The cemetery is maintained and run by volunteers who are doing a wonderful job.

Had a very pleasant guided tour of this wonderful cemetery today . Our guide Andrew was knowledgable and interesting to listen to. Several of the graves are listed and you can link to the website with your phone to get their stories. It was lovely to hear the tales of Bradford’s great and good who chose this amazing cemetery as their final resting place .
It’s so spacious with wide paths and great views of the city, the volunteers do a great job keeping on top of it with very little money . Some of the graves are overgrown , but this adds to the atmosphere of the place and it must be a haven for wildlife . A great tour and we will definitely be back ... thank you

Just had an amazing experience. A guided tour round Undercliffe cemetery with John Dallas, a flora and fauna expert, who also included many of the interesting bodies who are buried here.
