Welcome to the Friends of The Down Cemetery website
The Down Cemetery
The FOTDC was formed in 2016 as a group aiming to preserve The Down Cemetery and its monuments.
Our Aims are:
The preservation, conservation, sympathetic restoration and recording for public benefit of The Down Cemetery, including the monuments, buildings, standing structures, landscape, wildlife and burial records.
We are looking at clearing the graves and tombstones of undergrowth, transcribing inscriptions, careful restoration where possible and photographing all work undertaken.
Our long term aim is to make this data available to the public, hold open days and run historical and wildlife tours.
Spring working Parties
Working parties will resume in February. The dates will be posted on the website in due course.
