Cemetery Friends

Cemetery events

Large square pots containing plants and flowers

There are community events happening at our cemeteries throughout the year, including nature walks, guided tours, litter picks and more. If you are interested in conservation and heritage and want to find out more about what’s happening at some of our cemeteries, keep an eye on the noticeboards to find out what is happening locally.

Several of our cemeteries also have Cemetery Friends groups – with more to come. Cemetery Friends organise clean-ups, tours and get-togethers and are open to all.
