Friends of Burtonwood Village
Friends of Burtonwood Village (FBV) is a group working to support people in the local community. They highlight the cemetery as a special place of peace to remember loved ones.
They oversee all burials to ensure high standards, respect and dignity. We work closely with the friends group, and they manage the cemetery on our behalf. Burtonwood Tenants and Residents Association also work closely with the FBV.
Phone us if you’d like to speak, or get involved and we’ll put you in touch. They have an excellent knowledge of the history of the local families buried there, they’d love to hear your stories.
Every November, the friends group holds a March of the Witness. This starts at St Pauls Church on Mercer Street and travels to the cemetery, followed by a service.
