The Friends Of Belgrave Cemetery

The Friends of Belgrave Cemetery formed in 2004 with their aims geared towards the conservation, preservation and restoration of the cemetery. Opened in 1881 the cemetery contains many fine memorials – Unfortunately due to mother nature, gravity and Leicester City Council memorial health and safety team, many of these fine stones are now laid on the ground. Since their formation the Friends have organized the repair of 60 stones.
The headstone commemorating the death of Alderman Richard Hallam, founder of the primary school on Anstey Lane now lies flat.
It is the aim of the Friends to restore this beautiful headstone to it’s rightful upright position, therefore we seek permission from relatives of this gentleman.
