Reason for Listing

* Architectural interest: a well-preserved and well-executed example of a mid-C19 cemetery chapel by a recognised architect;
* Group value: with the nearby Anglican chapel, (listed at Grade II), this building forms a picturesque group of structures within the cemetery, whose entrance gateway is also listed at Grade II.


St Michael's Cemetery was laid out circa 1862, with areas for Anglican and Non-conformist burials, each of which was provided with a cemetery chapel.
