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.

Summer Walks – Brave & Bold Women of Bedford

Ellen Oliver – Suffragette



This walk celebrates Bedford women who achieved remarkable things in their life. They were artists, reformers, idealists, teachers. Some were brave but ridiculed women who were pioneers in times when the odds were stacked against them. And one was, by any measure, a remarkably brave patriot who had a short but very full life.

This event is free. Refreshments will be available at the Chapel for a small charge.

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