The webpage author has a report that the cemetery was closed to further burials in 1947.
The Ilkeston and District Historical Society have created a Portable Document File (you will need Adobe Reader) about the cemetery, its history and some of its occupants. You'll find this at Stanton Road Cemetery.
A mission church, dedicated to Saint John the Evangelist, was built in 1893-94 on Nottingham Road.
The mission church seats 300.
Holy Trinity was established as an ecclesiastical parish in 1888. The church of Holy Trinity was completed in 1890 on Granby Street, but was completed with no tower. Mining in the area left doubt that a tower could stand.
Holy Trinity Church seats 500.
The church of Saint Bartholomew was built in Hallam Fields in 1896.
St. Bartholomew Church seats 450.
The Church of Christ was built in Cotmanhay in 1847-48.
"ILKESTON is small, improving market-town, and watering place, of modern date, in the parish of its name and hundred of Morleston and Litchurch, about nine miles and a half N. E. from Derby, eight W. by N. from Nottingham, nearly 15 S. by W. from Mansfield, and ten S.E. from Belper. It stands on an elevated site near the river Erewash, commanding beautiful prospects in every direction, and its situation is considered remarkably healthy. Both the Erewash and the Nutbrook canals pass through the parish, affording a communication with the rivers Trent and Mersey. This place was anciently called Elchestane, and obtained a grant for a market and fair so early as 1251."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
The parish is about 125 miles north of the city of London. The parish contains the hamlet of Hallam Fields 2 miles south-east of the town. Garth NEWTON has a photograph of the Ilkeston Market Place on Geo-graph, taken in August, 2003.

Ilkeston Hospital on Heanor road was built in 1893 with separate wards for children, men and women. It had a single operating room, a mortuary and several outbuildings. This is now the Ilkeston Community Hospital (part of the NHS).
A Municipal Borough Sanatorium was also built in 1893 to hold 18 patients.
The author does not know what records have been retained. Hospitals were not required to archive their patient records. And the 1998 Data Protection Act makes sharing recent patient records even more unlikely.
