Maria McAleer, historical research
We have recently formed a History / Research Group to increase our knowledge of the cemetery. We are exploring many possible avenues of research. You will be expected to share your research with the History/Research team. Research can be done at home, in your own time, or if you prefer, you can work in our offices at North Lodge during the day.
You are encouraged to liaise with other volunteers, since that makes it more fun and fruitful, and there will be regular meetings of the History Group.

Fenton House (built in 1693) was lived in over the centuries by many families – but now, although it has the air of a family house, the ‘residents’ are collections, some from the last owner who died in the 1950s, and others that have come to be housed and looked after there. It also has a large and beautifully kept garden and apple orchard.
Front of House volunteers greet visitors, sell tickets and merchandise, check or sell NT membership, and introduce visitors to the history of the house.
Since 1985 the Junior League of London has worked to build better communities by improving the lives of local families in need. Each year volunteers provide thousands of hours of community service through charities that supply food, clothing, and employment skills training for needy Londoners.
OLIO connects neighbours with each other and volunteers with businesses so surplus food and other items can be shared, not thrown away.
If you love food, hate waste, care about the environment or want to connect with your community, OLIO is for you.
