What We Do
Cemetery Friends weed and tidy around memorials. This marks the graves of three young men drowned when the fishing boat “Mystery” sank in 1928. Two of the men were brothers and the body of a fourth crew member, another brother was never found.
Cemetery Friends paid for this memorial, to Commander Thomas Curtis, to be restored professionally. Commander Curtis was born in King’s Lynn and was in the navy for over fifty years from 1793 to 1845.
Cemetery Friends tidied this grave and put shingle in . This is the grave of Colonel Woodwark who was an MP and three times mayor of King’s Lynn.
The Friends marked out the original pathways between the sections and the Borough Council arranged for them to be surfaced.
