An organisation called Caring for God’s Acre work nationally to record, investigate, care for, and enjoy burial grounds and graveyards. Over the last year Gods Acre have been steadily GPS and geo physically mapping the whole of Brandwood End cemetery so they now have a map of blue squares, each one representing a grave.
‘Gods Acre’ are working together with the Friends of Brandwood End Cemetery and are now aiming to recruit a team of volunteers to record the information on each memorial, for transfer to the digitized map. This recording all happens in the cemetery and with a pencil on paper- so no tech requirements ! Its both rewarding and interesting.
They will be running a number of covid safe (limited number) sessions but 3 are already available for booking in June, July and August. We would love to welcome some more of our members/supporters to this project. Space is free but limited, so why not book yours at: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/154691517493
Please note– you must book direct via the link, as we are not able to take bookings due to restrictions on numbers. we hope to meet some of you there.
