Friends of Newport & Carisbrooke Cemeteries.
Newport Cemetery in Spring 2017
The aim of this Newport and Carisbrooke Cemeteries Project is to document burials/grave markers at Cemeteries in the modern civil parish of Newport, Isle of Wight - the cemeteries covered are Newport, St Paul's (old and current) and Carisbrooke Mountjoy Cemeteries (plus the old churchyard at St Paul's church Barton).
March 2017 - Under an initiative of Newport Parish Council, plans are afoot to form a 'Friends' group with aims including tidying-up these cemeteries and recording the burials within .
June 2017 - Agreement has been reached with the IWC Bereavement Services Department for the Method of Working and Risk Assessment for the FoNCC activities in the cemeteries. A couple of sessions are planned for the 'founder' group members and then a general invitation for volunteers will be made. For those interested, have a look at the Volunteers page.
