TitleVestry Minutes
DescriptionMainly annual vestry minutes detailing nominations and appointments of churchwardens.

Minutes are preceded by details of a speech made before a meeting (presumed to be 31 Jan 1828 to discuss levying rate on parishioners for repairing the parish churchyard and fencing churchyards and providing bells, etc., for new churches of St George’s, St Mary’s and St Philip’s). The speech recounts directions by Church Commissioners to build additional churches in the parish following parish return to parliament (c. 1809) which found that Sheffield had inadequate accommodation for religious worship for the size of the population (47,000) and discusses problems with parish burial ground.

Also contains copies of letters discussing state of churchyard and need for new burial ground, 1815 and 1816.
