Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Friends of Lawnswood Cemetery! We are a small community organisation formed in 2011. Our aim is to enhance, protect and promote the cemetery for future generations. Opened in 1875, the original 10-acre Victorian site is now designated as a ”Park or Garden of Special Historic Interest” with Historic England, and contains Grade 2 listed buildings and monuments. It has expanded over the years to its current 53 acres, and has been owned and managed by Leeds City Council…

Happy New Year

We wish all our supporters, members and volunteers a very Happy New Year and let us hope for better days ahead in 2022. We had our first Action Day of the year on New Year’s Day with 14 volunteers, including a new volunteer! The weather was kind and we cleared lots of leaves to let the new bulbs come through and the grass to breathe! Thank you to everyone who came, and we look forward to seeing everyone back when they are able to come. You are always welcome any time you can make it.
