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.

In Service at Buckingham Palace

For some people, working with royalty seems like an ideal job, but what really happens behind the doors of Buckingham Palace?  Janet Stow’s mother-in-law spent many years as a servant working under 3 monarchs – Queen Victoria, Edward VII and George V and Janet’s entertaining and informative talk about the time her mother-in-law spent at Buckingham Palace will give you the opportunity to see behind the scenes and find out what it was really like to rub shoulders with royalty.

Janet is a retired school teacher and  lived in Ampthill for most of her life.  She has recently moved to Toddington to be nearer her family.  Janet  gives this talk in aid of Kidney Cancer research.
