Foster Hill Road Cemetery Event Details

The Friends of Foster Hill Road Cemetery host a number of themed talks during the year, which are open to the public and always prove very popular.  The Cemetery records are available at the Chapel during the Heritage Weekend in September and an annual carol concert is held near Christmas.  Other events are held to mark special occasions.

Members of the Friends lead several guided walks during the summer months. Each walk is themed and covers topics such as the Cemetery’s spectacular graves, its history, its wildlife, tales of those buried there and more.  Walks are also included during the Heritage weekend.  The walks last approximately 1.5 hours and the pace is gentle.  However, the cemetery grounds are uneven so a pair of stout walking shoes is recommended.

We are also happy to arrange bespoke walks for interested groups, please contact us for details.

The times and dates of our events vary, so please see our events calendar for more details.

From Nicker to Vicar

The Revd Kelvin F Woolmer is the current Rector of St Peter De Merton, Bedford.  However, he has not always followed an ecclesiastical career and his talk takes you on an amusing, and sometimes irreverent, journey from 30 years in the police service to his becoming a Man of the Cloth.  The Revd Woolmer says is still amazed at how he came to end up being the Rector of St Peter De Merton Bedford and when he meets his old police colleagues  and they ask “So how did you end up being a vicar?” his only response is “God knows –  I ‘ve got no idea!”.

Tea and delicious home made cake will be available for a small charge.


Pay on the door.

(£2.00 event cost for Friends of Bedford Cemetery.)
