The Cemetery Park is managed and cared for by the dedicated staff and trustees of the Friends, for the community, under a service level agreement (contract) with London Borough of Tower Hamlets. We have three full-time staff and are supported by over 3,000 volunteers every year.

What we do

The Friends run over 170 events each year, including volunteering sessions, guided walks, forest school, and training courses. We work with a range of partners to run community cohesion, social development and health projects. We also research and preserve the heritage of the site and the stories of the people buried here.

The Friends have won many awards for their innovative work and have been featured in national media.
