The Friends of Newark Cemetery was set up in November 2005 with the aim of helping to improve the services and facilities of the Cemetery and to promote the site as
an attractive amenity to residents and visitors.
At our disposal we have the former Newark Cemetery Chapel, build in 1856 and renewed in 2010 (officially opened as an Interpretation Centre by the Newark Town Mayor on Saturday 11th September 2010).
*** Purpose of the Friends of Newark Cemetery:
To offer suggestions to the Newark Town Council on ways to improve the service and facilities of the Cemetery.
To provide input into the Cemetery Regulations.
To help identify problems with vandalism and other activities detrimental to the well-being of the Cemetery, and to work with Council to seek solutions to these problems.
To play an active part in assisting the Town Council with practical tasks such as litter-picking, painting seats, benches, open-days, etc.
To provide a welcoming presence and a source of help and information at the Cemetery during opening hours.
To act as guides for visitors to the Cemetery.
To collect feedback from visitors in the form of simple questionnaires.
To provide extra presence for the Cemetery site.
