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 – We will remember them – World War One at Bedford Cemetery

World War One had a huge impact on the people of Bedford. In this walk, you will hear stories of contributions to the war effort, both military and civilian, made by people who are buried at Foster Hill Road Cemetery.

You can also collect a free copy of our new WW1 leaflet.

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.

It looks like rain on Sunday, but don’t let that put you off.  If it rains there will be a ‘virtual walk’ instead with a talk about the WWI graves in the chapel.
