Heritage Open Days is England’s annual celebration of local history, architecture and culture. Co-ordinated nationally but run with the help of thousands of volunteers, the September event is an opportunity for private owners to allow free access to properties and events which cast a light on what makes neighbourhoods and communities special. It’s a once-a-year chance to uncover and discover hidden treasures and rarely told stories.
Foster Hill Road Cemetery Chapel will be open for anyone who would like to study the cemetery records from 1855 to date. You can trace interments of long lost relatives or just look at the records on display. Help will be available for anyone searching for specific graves.
