The Friends of Newport & Carisbrooke Cemeteries.
The Friends of Newport & Carisbrooke Cemeteries is a group of volunteers who give their time freely to help care for the Cemeteries and research the lives of those people buried there.
We rely heavily on 'donations' of materials, resources etc to support our activities; this page acknowledges the support we've received.
