Friends of Lister Lane Cemetery

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) have been to install signs at the Lister Lane and Gibbet Street entrances to the cemetery. These signify that the cemetery is a location of Commonwealth War graves.


As part of the First World War centenary, the CWGC have been raising public awareness to the fact that there are over 308,000 Commonwealth World War Dead whose graves and memorials can be found in 13,000 different locations across the UK. One of the ways in which the CWGC are doing this is by erecting their standard green war graves signs at sites where they maintain commemorations.


Our thanks go to the Friends' Hon. Treasurer, Richard Mallinson for liaising with the CWGC for installation of the signage.
