Berkhamsted Heritage Open Day 2015

visitors looking around the cemetery

Around 30 people came to the Berkhamsted Heritage Open Day in September to see Rectory Lane Cemetery; some to see the progress of the project since last September and some who had never visited the space before. Newly-trained volunteer guides took tours during the afternoon to outline the history and an overview of works planned.

On the afternoon visitors could also follow three themed trails where veterans of both world wars and former notable residents are buried; each individual grave displayed a personal history. Children’s graves were signposted by small windmills. A ‘treasure hunt’ type quiz was also devised by the Mosley family for children and adults.
