Geographical remit: 


Highgate Cemetery is one of the finest Victorian cemeteries in the country. It was rescued by the Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust following the collapse of its private owning company, and is now run by the Trust, a registered charity, for the public benefit. 

The Friends' aims are :

  • to promote the public benefit in the cemetery by any means appropriate and likely to preserve it as a place of historic and other interest and beauty
  • to permit the Cemetery to be used as a public burial ground
  • to secure the repair, restoration and preservation of the Cemetery, tis monuments and buildings and other artefacts and their setting for the public benefit


  • We open Highgate Cemetery to the public and welcome around 90,000 visitors a year, running tours and other events
  • We maintain and restore the Cemetery where appropriate
  • We continue to operate the Cemetery as a public burial ground
