Proudly helping to bring Hull General Cemetery back to its best

There’s nothing we love more than helping to improve local communities, so we were thrilled to support the conservation efforts being made by the Friends of Hull General Cemetery.

Since 2018, this community group of volunteers has taken on the challenge of caring for the heritage site of special natural interest, which lies off Spring Bank West.

Dating back to 1847, this important and historic green space has undergone a number of improvements in recent years – including a complete refurbishment of its cherished Cuthbert Brodrick gates.

Having originally painted the imposing official entrance back in October 1981, we were thrilled to assist with their recent makeover.

Mark, who spruced up the gates for us 43 years ago, was delighted to attend the official opening by Hull North MP Dame Diana Johnson to admire our latest handiwork, alongside our Commercial Director Tim Davison.

We’d like to says a massive well done to the Friends of Hull General Cemetery committee for their dedication and commitment – you really are reclaiming the area and returning it back into a vital community resource.
