About the Group.
Friends of Warriston Cemetery (FOWC) was set up in July 2013 following an open meeting to discuss setting up a group dedicated to caring for this historic site. FOWC want Warriston Cemetery to be a place to be proud of, where the heritage and environment are safeguarded and promoted for the enjoyment of all.
Please join us on our journey to rescue this wonderful historic cemetery. We invite you to contact us with comments, photos, and resources so that we can help build and expand our organisation. It all starts with the small seed of intent that can flourish with the stewardship of an involved and dedicated community!
We are a friendly bunch and welcome new volunteers. Even an hour of your time would be very useful. Be warned, though, the place can become addictive! Work party sessions take place usually on Tuesdays and Saturdays each week with extra days as and when required. There is no formal commitment, just come along whenever you like (and of course leave when you want to). Meet at the main gate (Green Shed) or at the Red Lady memorial at the end of the bricked driveway around 10am or come and find us if you arrive later in the day.
Warriston cemetery is located at the end of Warriston Gardens which can be accessed from Inverleith Row. The cemetery address is; 42 Warriston Gardens, Edinburgh EH3 5NE.
If you can’t come along, in person, for whatever reason you can support the group via annual membership (life membership is also available). For more details, please send a message to the following email address; firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
