Lord Mayor of Sheffield Coun Magid Magid is set to visit the Zion Graveyard in Attercliffe on Saturday to unveil a plaque commemorating fundraising efforts to preserve its history.

Prominent 19th-century anti-slavery campaigner Mary Anne Rawson is among those buried at the site, which was under threat when it was put up for sale. A friends group won a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to take over the graveyard.
