The Friends of Northwood Cemetery
secure Heritage Lottery Fund Grant.
On Monday 7th July 2014 the HLF announced that it would ‘earmark’ £1,064,000 for restoration works at Northwood Cemetery. They will advance £75,300 of that so that the Board can specify the works in detail over the next six months. Then, in early 2015, it is envisaged that the Board will submit a further application to the HLF to draw down the balance to enable a start to be made on-site in 2016.
