VOLUNTEERS: As an independent organisation entirely reliant on the work of volunteers we are always keen to recruit not only new members, but people with the time and energy to contribute actively to The Friends’ ambitions. This is especially important as the extensive developments arising out of the Heritage and Big Lottery Fund project rely heavily on volunteer work. There are many ways in which volunteers can contribute, and if this is of interest to you, please contact the Friends on 020 7351 1689 or by email on: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in becoming a guide, please join one of the regular Sunday tours, and identify yourself to the Friends’ guide for more information.
The Friends of Brompton Cemetery participate in a Joint Working Group with the Royal Parks Agency (who manage the cemetery) and representatives of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to develop plans for the care and improvement of the cemetery, and to assist with their implementation. The Friends occasionally help to maintain the cemetery and its monuments by leading corporate volunteer days; please contact us directly if your group would like to give a day’s work to clearing undergrowth or cleaning monuments.
The Friends offer a range of guidebooks, maps, postcards and other literature for sale from the Friends’ Office in the South Lodge, after tours, at lectures and on Open Day. We sometimes have a volunteer in the South Lodge to answer enquiries and sell literature during the week. The Friends’noticeboards, near the Old Brompton Road and Fulham Road entrances, display current information about tours, events and other items of interest to Friends and other visitors to the cemetery.
For grave searches, please contact the Cemetery offices on 020 7352 1201 (+44 20 7352 1201 from outside the UK).
The Friends of Brompton Cemetery are members of the National Federation of Cemetery Friends and the Association of Significant Cemeteries in Europe.
