The aims of the Friends group are to promote the preservation, care and improvement of the Cemetery as a place of historic and ecological interest and as a burial ground. To work with other agencies and interested parties to achieve those aims.

We are helping, raise peoples awareness about the Cemetery, the stories behind the people buried there, it’s history and future.

This includes:

  • Helping visitors with queries via our database of burials
  • Facilitating school visits
  • Recording the Monumental Inscriptions and taking photographs, to preserve the information for the future
  • Organising displays for family history and heritage events
