Welcome to the Hardwick Road Cemetery Website
The Committee and members of The Friends of Hardwick Road Cemetery are delighted to welcome you to this website of King’s Lynn’s Victorian Cemetery and trust that you find it interesting and informative. Bisected by Hardwick Road the cemetery provides a distinctive landscape to one of the key entrances to the town. A brief history of the site can be found on the History page. Although little used for burials today it remains a site well cared for by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk who administer and maintain the cemetery. The Friends were launched in 2006 for the public benefit, to promote the historic interest of Hardwick Road Cemetery, Hardwick Road, King’s Lynn, Norfolk by associating the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk (hereinafter called ‘the Borough Council’), and local and national statutory and voluntary amenity societies in a common cause to promote the Cemetery’s architectural, sculptural, landscape, natural and historical interest and to provide such facilities as required for the furtherance of the social welfare, education, recreation and leisure-time occupation of the site
