Plymouth Ford Park - War Graves Week Tour
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) will be bringing War Graves Week to Plymouth and offering free tours at Ford Park Cemetery (and other local sites) between May 20th and May 25th 2023.
War Graves Week is an initiative aimed at encouraging people from the local community to come together and discover the World War heritage on their doorstep – learning about the stories of those commemorated by the CWGC in Plymouth and the skills, dedication and expertise of those CWGC staff and volunteers who work to keep their memory alive.
- Tours of the site including information about our history and work plus stories of people we commemorate here
- Meet our staff – got a burning question? Ask our experts anything!
- Stone mason demonstrations – and have a go yourself
- Eyes on Hands On demonstration – how our volunteers play a vital role in helping us to maintain UK war graves.
Please wear suitable sensible shoes for a walking tour. The Ford Park Cemetery Cafe and History Centre will be open afterwards where you are welcome to purchase homemade cakes and other refreshments.
