Capt. Arthur Platts headstone before restoration
On Saturday 11th June 2022, a memorial service was held for our late WWI historian, Peter Bradshaw.
The Friends have commissioned and installed a memorial seat for Peter. The seat looks out over the Valley, the Cemetery, and Gainsborough.
This was one of Peter’s favourite views in the Cemetery.
We hope the view gives you a few moments of peace.
The Friends of Gainsborough Cemeteries and Chapel was set-up to help restore the family headstones of servicemen and women who died during WWI and WWII.
Both cemeteries have graves recognised by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission
We also work to preserve both the General Cemetery, its Chapel, and the North Warren (Non-Conformist) Cemetery. With the kind permission of Gainsborough Town Council.
The General Cemetery is situated on Cox’s Hill in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. And the North Warren Cemetery is on Ropery Road in Gainsborough.
