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.

Remembrance Weekend - Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th November.

We’ll be opening the cemetery chapel for the above weekend. The chapel will be open from 10am until 3pm each day. We’ll also be launching the latest in the Gainsborough’s War Story series.

Can you help?

We are trying to find photos of servicemen who are listed on the Roll of Honour.

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