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 clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, full-length trousers (no shorts!) and sturdy shoes. Please read the Covid-19 safety page if you have any concerns.

Board of Trustees

As a charity with limited resources, we find ourselves, at times, short of the right kind of expertise to help make Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park the best that it can be. Can you help? If you have lots of enthusiasm and have some skilled knowledge of corporate governance, business planning, finance or HR, your contribution could be invaluable. You don’t have to be a biologist, ecologist, historian or City professional (though they are all welcome too!) to help us run our Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee, by providing insight and strategic thinking to running the administration.

Please contact us for further information and tell us about your background and what you would be interested in.

Monthly Heritage Volunteering
second Sunday 2pm-4pm

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!

Please email

Biodiversity Monitoring

Would you like to get involved in monitoring plants and animals to help conserve them? Maybe you want to improve your skills in identifying species? Or do you have a particular expertise you could contribute? We are especially looking for help with regular Butterfly transects from April to September. Please contact us for more information.

We contribute our records to the UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme and the London Natural History Society, and we are a key partner in Tower Habitats, the biodiversity partnership for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
