Unlocking Highgate Cemetery

Support the Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust (charity no. 1058392)

We are an independent charity, relying on a loyal and supportive community of volunteers, members, grave owners, visitors and donors. Unlike most cemeteries, we are not run or funded by a local council. With your help, we will ensure Highgate Cemetery remains an active burial ground and a sanctuary for heritage, nature and community.

With funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and our own reserves, we can begin the vital work of conserving our 36-acre site, including 200 years of heritage, a unique natural habitat, and a place for community and reflection. This seven-year, £18 million project is called Unlocking Highgate Cemetery. You can read more about it here.

To complete the funding, we need to raise £200,000 per year. Every donation, no matter how small, helps preserve this magical place for future generations.

Donate now or contact us to discuss other ways to support.

Thank you.
