Notable people buried here include Scientist James Prescott Joule, known as ‘The Father of Modern Physics’, radical lawyer Richard Pankhurt, husband of Emmeline Pankhurst the Manchester suffragette, Victorian actor and Shakespearean play revivalist Charles Alexander Calvert, and Manchester artist Warwick Brookes.
