Friends of Histon Road Cemetery (FHRC)
The Friends of Histon Road Cemetery was set up by a group of local residents who were increasingly concerned by the deteriorating environment and misuse of the site. The group was established in 2006 and has since worked closely with the local community and Cambridge City Council. A development plan is now being implemented to improve the site whilst preserving its historical integrity. Regular gardening volunteers have made enormous improvements.
Friends are kept informed by our regular newsletter which includes progress reports and regular articles about some of those interred in the Cemetery.
As a member of the National Federation of Cemetery Friends we are in contact with groups throughout the Country.
What we aim to do
- To Protect and enhance Histon road Cemetery for the public benefit as a place of rememberance, spirituality, history and nature.
- To speak and act with Cambridge City Council and other organisations on behalf of those who care for Histon Road Cemetary as such a place, particularly those who cherish the memory of one buried there
- To ensure continued public access to and to increase awareness, appreciation and enjoyment of Histon Road cemetery within the local community and the wider city.
