On the evening of Thursday 9th August, the Friends hosted an event to formally mark the unveiling of a metal plaque commissioned by the former Secretary and a founding member of the Friends group, Harriet Dell. The plaque cast by Rudi Holmes includes a poem written by his sister Gaia reflecting on how different cultures blend together within a community.


Following the unveiling, guests and Friends seated on the terrace leading to the lower section of the cemetery listened to a variety of verse including readings by Gaia, David Glover and Richard Robinson.

A metal plaque has been set into the flagged area in front of the former mortuary chapel. The plaque cast by Rudi Holmes includes a poem written by his sister Gaia Holmes reflecting on how different cultures blend together within a community. The plaque which has been donated was commissioned by Harriet Dell, former Secretary and one of the founders of the Friends.


We would like to thank Rudi for installing the plaque.
