Dating from the 18th century, the Quaker Burial ground contains the graves of many ironmasters and manufacturers associated with Coalbrookdale.
These include Abraham Darby III (1789), the builder of the Ironbridge, and William Reynolds (1803), Ironmaster. Abraham Darby II (1763) who made provision for the cemetery was the first member of the famous Darby family to be buried there. The last was Rebecca Sarah Darby in 1908. The cemetery saw its last burial in 1982.
The cemetery consists of a sloping lawn with 2 huge fir trees enclosed behind high brick walls. Access is through an iron gateway in the wall.
Visitors will note that the headstones are separated from the graves and placed around the walls.
