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.

The Body in the Bag

You might remember the strange case of Gareth Williams, an MI6 agent who in 2010, was found dead in a locked suitcase and with the keys inside. Suicide? Murder? Assassination by foreign agents? The case remained a total enigma.

Last year, Paul Barwick gave us one of our most interesting talks, on “The White Mouse,” and this talk promises to be just as fascinating, as he offers various possible solutions…but there will be probably just as many questions as answers.

Refreshments will be available after the talk.  These are free, but a small contribution to the Friends is always welcome.

This talk is free to Friends of the Cemetery.
