The burial ground was made by levelling the ground on the sloping site, on the upper part of which an earlier Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, later the Sunday School, stood.
George Cheetham (1843-1913) was a monumental mason. He worked on many of the graves in the graveyard and his name can be seen there.
In 2003, Glyn Hughes, who lived in Mill Bank, wrote a poem for the village which is etched on slate on the graveyard wall. A plaque to commemorate the life and work of Glyn Hughes can also be seen within the graveyard.
213 people are buried in the graveyard but it is now closed for interment.
The Methodist Church own the graveyard and, with their agreement, The Mill Bank Group look after and maintain the grounds.
