Families

As well as our programme of events throughout the year, we also have a range of downloadable resources for families who wish to explore the cemeteries further, from home or in person!

Schools

From January 2020 we are offering guided tours and facilitated workshops in the cemeteries, tailored to the needs of KS1, KS2, and KS3 pupils and covering multiple areas of the curriculum.
There is no charge for these sessions during 2020 and 2021 because the project has funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund for our work with schools.
