The Friends

We rely on the entrance charges you pay to enable us to maintain and enhance Highgate Cemetery. Unlike most cemeteries, we are not run or funded by a local council. All the funds we raise are devoted to the preservation of the cemetery: we don’t make a profit.

The Friends have three aims:

  • to preserve Highgate Cemetery as a place of historic and other interest and beauty;
  • to permit the Cemetery to be used as a public burial ground; and
  • to secure the repair, restoration and preservation of the Cemetery for the public benefit.

Our memorandum and articles of association are our governing documents.
