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.

“I’d never have guessed that!”

Join us for a guided walk around the Cemetery and hear some of the more unusual  and fascinating stories that aren’t told by the person’s headstone.

The walk is free but a small contribution to the Friends would be welcome.

Meet at the Chapel 10 minutes before the start of the walk.

Home made cakes and tea will be available after the walk for a small charge.

Please note: The cemetery ground is uneven, so wear sensible shoes. When viewing memorials, please do not lean on them.

The UK Met Office has issued an extreme heat alert for Sunday. Don’t forget your hat, sunglasses, drink and sunscreen.
