We have planted 150 whips to celebrate the 150 years the cemetery has been open (1869-2019).

Additionally we planted out the Blake memorial with beautiful flowers in November and held a vigil marking the 100 years since a munitions factory blew up in the borough a week before armistice 1918.

All this follows a very successful summer with a certificate of distinction for the Friends of Margravine Cemetery from London in Bloom – acknowledging our work as a neighbourhood group and our care for the cemetery.

But there is still much to do with 2 listed Victorian buildings needing specialist attention.
