Welcome to the Friends of Cathays Cemetery.


The Friends of Cathays Cemetery was founded in late 2006, and comprises members from all walks of life and interests, who are all committed to protecting and developing Cathays Cemetery for the future. It became a registered charity in 2010 with the following aims:

· To promote the conservation and protection of the infrastructure, monuments & buildings of Cathays Cemetery for the public benefit

· Likewise to promote the conservation and protection of the flora & fauna in the Cemetery

· To advance the education of the public in the history and heritage of the Cemetery

· To promote its importance as a conservation area and use as an educational resource.

We also seek to work with Cardiff Council and to promote the Cemetery as a haven for reflection and remembrance.
