I found this sad but interesting information relating to a grave in Walkley cemetery.

Thomas Armitage who died after injuring himself playing for Sheffield wednesday.

His grandad Tom was the first ever cap for the  England cricket team.

Also Len Armitage - brother of Thomas - played over 300 professional games for Wednesday, Stoke and Leeds amongst others.
