The Friends Group raises funds and promotes volunteering to improve the appearance of the cemetery and to develop its historical, environmental and educational potential.

There is a small committee, and a wider group of volunteers.We’re supported by local councillors and Scarborough Borough Council.

Join in our monthly volunteer sessions, become a member, contact us and subscribe to our newsletter, make a donation or take part in activities in the cemetery.
