When the Friends of Darwen Cemetery was first formed, the founder members had a vision and plan to restore as much of the Western Cemetery as they could, including finding and restoring the ninety plus War Graves, and in part we have achieved many of our goals.
Education walks and remembrance services are regularly featured in our diary, and well supported by the townspeople of Darwen.
One of the first projects and one that we are very proud of is the Ashes Garden where plaques of remembrance can be purchased from Brent Stevenson Memorials, the garden is a beautiful tranquil setting where you can reflect and remember your loved ones.
