CWGC hands over £700 to help finish work at York Cemetery

04 October 2012

Our North East Regional Supervisor Stephen Liversage recently travelled to York Cemetery to present a cheque for £700, on behalf of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, to John Waterson of The York Cemetery Trust.

The cheque was a direct contribution from the CWGC to the York Cemetery Trust, which has a contract to maintain the site. The money will help towards the completion of work being carried out on the area around the Cross of Sacrifice which had fallen into disrepair. York Cemetery contains 236 burials of the First and Second World Wars.
