Caring for God’s AcreAcronym: CfGA
Working nationally to support groups and individuals to investigate, care for, and enjoy burial grounds.
Contribution to the Atlas
There are over 20,000 burial grounds in England and Wales, ranging from small rural medieval churchyards to large Victorian city cemeteries, spanning different cultures, religions and centuries.
Appealing to many who are interested in local history and the natural world, burial grounds encapsulate the history of communities whilst offering refuge for our native wildlife.
For many people burial grounds are the only locally accessible green space. However, their heritage value, and even their continuing presence, cannot be taken for granted. They are under threat from development, closure, under management and mismanagement.
We work nationally to support groups and individuals to investigate, care for, and enjoy these unique sites.
