Restoring Brompton Cemetery

Why we need your help

Brompton Cemetery is one of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries in London. This picturesque space is managed by The Royal Parks. It continues as a working cemetery with Grade I listed heritage status and offers tranquillity amongst the hustle and bustle of South West London. Famous names buried at the cemetery include suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst and cricket champion John Wisden, amongst many more.

Over the years, natural ageing means that the Cemetery is now in desperate need of restoration and a new lease of life. The good news is that the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund have pledged nearly £4.5m conservation support. This funding will be unlocked when we raise a minimum of £500,000 in match funding, £30,000 of this we aim to secure through smaller gifts, with the generous help of the commmunity.

How you can help

Your donation will help repair important buildings like the Chapel and Lodges, create a new visitor centre, improve volunteer facilities, support wildlife surveys, as well as fund apprenticeships in horticulture and stonemasonry.

Whatever you can give, whether it be £20, £50, £100 or more, thank you for helping us to restore and conserve the beauty and heritage of this extraordinary cemetery for future generations and for all those who visit it today.

Thank you!
