The Cemetery Park is looked after by the dedicated staff, trustees and volunteers of the Friends, for the community, under a service level agreement (contract) with London Borough of Tower Hamlets. We have two 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 research and preserve the heritage of the site and the stories of the people buried here. We work with a range of partners to run community cohesion, social development and health projects.

We’ve won awards for our work and have been featured in the media.
