Join local historian and librarian Richard Greenaway for a tour of Linwood Cemetery on Sunday 20 October from 10am to 12pm Richard will reveal some of the fascinating characters and stories associated with the cemetery. After the tour he will be available to answer questions.
Admission is a gold coin donation and no prior bookings are needed. Meet at the entrance off Butterfield Avenue (next door to Bromley Park on Buckleys Road). The tour is part of the Christchurch City Council/New Zealand Historic
Places Trust Reconnect Heritage experience.
If you can’t make this tour Richard is hosting another on Saturday 2 November from 10 a.m.-12 noon. The tours are run on behalf of the Friends of Linwood Cemetery – a dedicated group of volunteers who organise working bees to maintain and care for headstones, gardens and paths. Their aim is to conserve the heritage of the Linwood Cemetery for future generations. Their website has lots of interesting information about the cemetery including ANZACs in Linwood Cemetery.
We also have lots of useful Linwood Cemetery information on our website. Join one of Richard’s tours – they are always lively and full of fascinating detail.
