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.

Unguided Walks

There is nothing like a walk for clearing away the cobwebs and Foster Hill Road Cemetery is a beautiful and interesting place for a wander.

We have 8 unguided walks including a ‘Meander in front of the Chapel’, ‘People who shaped Bedford and a dog’, & ‘Badgers, babies and a murder on the tennis courts’. There is also a Tree Walk which identifies some of the 850+ trees in the Cemetery.

Volunteers will be on hand to provide copies of maps and details of the walks and to answer any questions you may have.

The walks are free but a small contribution towards the Friends’ would be welcome.
(Our Guided Walks will be back in July and August, Covid regulations willing. Watch this space)

Please ensure you follow the current guidelines on social distancing.

Please note that the cemetery ground is uneven. When viewing memorials, please do not lean on them.

Toilet facilities are not available.
