The Friends of the General Cemetery was set-up to help preserve the General Cemetery and the North Warren (Non-Conformist) Cemetery with the kind help of Gainsborough Town Council.

The General Cemetery is situated on Cox’s Hill in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. And the North Warren Cemetery is on Ropery Road. Both cemeteries have graves recognised by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

Final book in Gainsborough’s War Story series released. The book costs 15 and if you would like to order a copy, please email: susan@friendsofthegeneralcemetery.com

 

Can you help?

We have a list of servicemen whose relatives we are trying to trace. Ideally, we need the permission of relatives to be able to restore these headstones. We’ve created a page for each of them giving photos (if we have them) and more details.

 

We’ve published our Privacy Policy in line with General Data Protection Regulations. It explains how we look after your data and your rights.

 

The Friends of Gainsborough Cemeteries and Chapel is a small charity run by volunteers. Contact: Susan Edlington
