Restoring Brompton Cemetery

We need your help to restore this beautiful Brompton Cemetery, which welcomes more than 700,000 visitors each year and provides a home to wide variety of flora and fauna.

Chapel and monuments in Brompton Cemetery  c  Robert StephensonManaged by The Royal Parks, Brompton continues as an active cemetery today, with Grade I listed heritage status and as a Site of Nature Conservation Importance. There are also many prominent and important people buried in the cemetery including; suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, pugilist Gentleman John Jackson and cricket champion John Wisden.   Making it an important visitor destination, loved by locals as well as visitors to the city.

The cemetery is in desperate need of restoration and we need your help to secure the funding to do this.  Our conservation plans focus on Brompton’s heritage, nature and community and we're proud to be working in partnership with The Royal Parks and Friends of Brompton Cemetery to make this happen.


We are delighted that the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund have formally pledged nearly £4.5m as part of their Parks for People programme to protect the future of this historic and nationally important Cemetery in the heart of London. 

This funding will only be unlocked once we have match-fundraised £500,000 from a combination of the local community, corporate partners, trusts and foundations.
