Cemetery Project 2017

The Town Council are hoping to Bring new life to Selby Cemetery and held 3 consultation events with the local community in October 2017. 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.

This project will take place in June and July 2017.  There will be posters and booklets available about the project from August 2017.

The Tree Trail and Nature Walks will have a booklet produced by a local graphics designer and printer, available from August/September 2017.

There will be two Cemetery Tours taking place at 2pm on the 25 October and 29 October 2017. Please come along and take a walk through the cemetery.
