The Friends of Burnley Cemeteries was formed in 2013 to raise awareness of the historical, social, architectural and ecological importance of cemeteries in the Burnley District. We work in partnership with Burnley Borough Council and organise guided walks, help with family history enquiries, produce self-guided walks leaflets and a yearly newsletter. We meet every two months in Burnley Cemetery offices and new members are always welcome.
