Adopt a grave

Thinking of joining us?  


Rendering previously neglected graves beautiful again, particularly in the Garden of Remembrance area, is part of making it a vibrant green space.  Adopting a grave means looking after it – weeding and planting out as a miniature garden – and then maintaining it throughout the year.

This role could suit you if you:

  • Enjoy working out of doors, either on your own or with others
  • Have basic gardening skills and a few tools – or these can be provided
  • Are looking to volunteer two or three hours a month.

We would:

  • Identify a grave for you to adopt
  • Agree a planting scheme for local conditions and wildlife
  • Reimburse planting expenses.
