Cemetery Friends Group

The Cemetery service team are looking to work with Citizens to create a ‘Friends of Wilford Hill (Southern Cemetery)’ group. The aims of the group will be to undertake voluntary works on site, help with events such as the annual Christmas service or simply to be willing to attend occasional informal meetings to discuss developments and to raise awareness of ongoing works. If you would like more information please contact the Cemetery service
