Symbol Hunts and Scavenger Hunts

Our Symbol Hunts and Scavenger Hunts are fun activities for primary-school-aged children, specially designed to get them interested in aspects of cemetery heritage.


Working in small supervised groups, children will use worksheets to explore and discover the cemetery, hunting for landmarks, different symbols on headstones, or other snippets of information to be found among the graves.

Entry is free, and children receive free bookmarks, colouring sheets and participation certificates. Children's history books will also be available to purchase.

We usually hold these activities on open days or special activity days. Please watch our website and social media outlets for news of upcoming events.
