The Friends of Lister Lane Cemetery was formed in 1999. In collaboration with Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council, the volunteers attempt to promote the upkeep and public profile of the site. In 2015, the Cemetery was awarded a Significant Cemetery in Europe status by the Association of Significant Cemeteries in Europe...
The Halifax General Cemetery, Lister Lane, was opened in 1841. It covers three acres of land, laid out around a neo-classical chapel (now derelict) and a raised terrace with views across Halifax to Beacon Hill. It is Grade II listed in Historic England's 'Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England', and has many interesting monuments, particularly the gothic spires and obelisks along the main pathway.
