Friends of West Norwood Cemetery (FOWNC) aims to increase knowledge and appreciation of West Norwood Cemetery. We hold general tours on the first Sunday of every month, special themed tours of the cemetery during the summer, and meetings with talks during the winter. There are details of these tours and talks in our programme of events.

We publish three newsletters a year, and are starting to produce our own booklets on notable people buried in the cemetery.

As a registered charity we aim to raise funds for conservation work, and to encourage other organisations and individuals to make contributions.

Through our efforts, numerous monuments have been repaired or more substantially restored during the past decade, and an extensive programme of works directed by Lambeth Council is currently under way.

West Norwood Cemetery is on Norwood Road, a short walk from West Norwood Railway Station. Burial, cremation and grave records, and opening times are on the Lambeth Council web site.

Annual membership for FOWNC is only £5. Donations are welcome. If you would like further information about supporting the Friends of West Norwood Cemetery please contact our Secretary.
