The Victorian Cemetery (previous year IYN)

The Friends of the Victorian Cemetery was set up in 2014 by then Deputy Mayor, Councillor Margaret Rose who continues to lead a  small, enthusiastic group of volunteers, supported by Marlborough Town Council's Grounds & Estates Manager.  They clear vegetation, prune shrubs, bulbs and plant wild flowers such as primroses and foxgloves with the aim of preserving and tending a peaceful and lovely part of Marlborough's history.  A focus of the work has been around the Pauper's Grave, a mass grave for those too poor to afford a space of their own.

2019 has been an active year for the Friends of the Cemetery.  The group and its relationship with the Town Council has been put on a more formal footing, maintenance work continues, the funds benefitted from a Waitrose Green Token scheme and a lovely new bench has been installed thanks to the generosity of Tim Hamilton-Greirson.
