Get skills in nature conservation and gardening, meet like-minded people, record history, or help us run the charity. If you would like your company employees to volunteer as part of your CSR programme, go to the corporate volunteering page.

Nature conservation volunteering

Want to get involved in helping us care for the wildlife and plant life of the park, and learn some gardening skills? Book a place on Ticket Tailor. Please read the details in the event description, and contact us if you have any other questions.

We supply all tools and equipment. Bring food and drinks, and your own gloves if you have them. Please wear suitable outdoor clothes, full-length trousers (no shorts!) and sturdy shoes. Please read the Covid-19 safety page.

Board of Trustees

Help us make Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park the best that it can be! If you have enthusiasm, knowledge or life experience your contribution could be invaluable. You don’t have to be a biologist, ecologist, historian or City professional.

We are not looking for trustees at the moment (Apr 2021). However we may occasionally need skilled volunteers. Please contact us for further information and tell us about your background and what you would be interested in.

Monthly Heritage Volunteering

We record the monuments as part of an ongoing project to record the history of the Cemetery Park, and research the stories of the people buried here. Help us and learn about the park’s history and some of its more infamous residents! It normally takes place on the second Sunday of every month, 2pm-4pm. Current meetings are online.

Biodiversity monitoring
