We are on the look out for adoptees

We are on the look out for adoptees from community groups, schools, and faith and youth organisations.

we have more than 100 war graves in the cemetery, most in the western cemetery section.

Around 70 are from WW1 and the others from WW2 and other conflicts.

The scheme has been running since 2010 and we are proud that many have been looked after with tender loving care over the years.

However we need 15 new adoptees to help care for the rest.

Darwen had 1300 casualties in WW1 and over 200 in WW2. so it’s only right that local residents care and remember them in this special way.

Potential adoptees can apply to Diane by emailing dianedavies@darwencementry.org.uk
