Heritage Open Days is England’s annual celebration of local history, architecture and culture. Co-ordinated nationally but run with the help of thousands of volunteers, the September event is an opportunity for private owners to allow free access to properties and events which cast a light on what makes neighbourhoods and communities special.
It’s a once-a-year chance to uncover and discover hidden treasures and rarely told stories
The Cemetery will have all the records available for the cemetery from 1855 when it opened, up until the time the grounds were not used on a regular basis, as it was then full. This is an opportunity for everyone to search for records of past relatives or just to see how fascinating these books are. There will be Friends and cemetery staff available to help in searches and also to guide people to a specific area of the grounds.
