Welcome to the Friends of Margravine Cemetery

Welcome to Margravine Cemetery, also known in the past as Hammersmith Cemetery. Our organisation, the Friends of Margravine Cemetery is well over 150 strong. We work closely with the Council and with other relevant organisations in caring for the cemetery. Our group works on a membership basis, so if you enjoy your visits and would like to become a member of our group – or volunteer some of your time – or give a donation, then please do get in touch with us. Members benefit from being kept up to date with all the events in the cemetery, receive regular newsletters and invitations to seasonal cemetery walks as well as group discussion meetings to enhance the use of the cemetery. If you want to contact us please email: info@margravinecemetery.org.uk
