The most historic churches in South Yorkshire for a funeral
There are a wide variety of historic churches in the county of South Yorkshire with the majority built hundreds of years ago. Many of which have more than a tale or two to tell of their own.
If you’re planning a burial funeral in South Yorkshire then you might want to sample a few of the churches we’ve recommended below:
Church of St Mary, Ecclesfield
Located in the village of Ecclesfield, the Church of St Mary is a Grade I listed building and is one of the largest parishes in England. The village of Ecclesfield is now a northern suburb of Sheffield, meaning that the church is one of only five Grade I listed buildings within the Sheffield boundary.
Church of St Mary the Virgin, Beighton
The church of St Mary the Virgin at Beighton is located just off the high street and is a Grade II listed building. While the origin of the church dates back to the 12th century, there’s no trace of the original structure.
All Saints Church, Rotherham
Also known as Rotherham Minster, the All Saints Church has been described as “one of the largest and stateliest churches in Yorkshire” by famous architect Sir Nikolaus Pevsner and was designated as a Grade I listed building in October 1951.
The Minister Church of St George, Doncaster
Originally erected in the 12th century, this Grade I listed building burnt down in 1853 and was re-designed by architect Sir George Gilbert Scott. The church was also described by Sir John Betjeman as showing “Victorian Gothic at its very best.” It’s also home to a clock that was designed by Dent who also constructed the clock for the palace of Westminster - known by its more famous name of Big Ben.
St Mary’s Church, Barnsley
Believed to have been built during the 1800s, there isn’t too much information about the backstory of St Mary’s Church in Barnsley. What we do know is that hidden inside is a wonderful Victorian stained glass window that shows off a beautiful picture that highlights some of the artistry at the time.
