Friends of Ilkley Cemetery

 Cemetery 2021

The Friends of Ilkley Cemetery undertake improvement work in the cemetery, including litter picking and simple gardening jobs, researching of tombstones and natural history. Our main activities involve tidying graves, cutting back weeds and undergrowth as well as bulb planting, leaf clearing, and litter picking. We report any interesting wildlife sightings such as rare plants, bats and unusual birds to the local wildlife groups.

The Friends of Ilkley Cemetery normally meet for an hour or so on Tuesday afternoons at 2pm. Planned meeting dates are weather dependent and may also be affected by changes in Covid-19 social distancing and lockdown measures.
