Cemetery Project 2017/18

The Town Council held 3 consultation events with the local community in October 2017 at Selby Cemetery about bringing new life to the Cemetery. The feedback from the consultation was positive.

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded the Cemetery Project £9,000 for the first phase of the Cemetery Project - Mariners, Merchants and Monuments.  The funding will be used to provide re-enactments of peoples lives buried in the Cemetery, working with Selby High School, Selby Family History Group and the Town Council. The funding will also pay for tree trails throughout the cemetery.

Leaflets are available at the Cemetery and are attached below for downloading.
