Here, they unveiled a new interpretation board at the Park Avenue gates as well as serving hot drinks and home made cakes to visitors. The board features photographs and information on some of the interesting residents of the cemetery and the history of the site. It is intended to be the first of several, using money the group have raised from donations.
