Symbol & Scavenger Hunts

Our Symbol Hunts and Scavenger Hunts are fun and highly educational activities for primary-school-aged children. They were specially designed to get children interested in aspects of cemetery heritage, and they really work! 

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.

These events can be organised for private groups, and we otherwise run them as part of our Open Days. Participating children receive free bookmarks, colouring sheets, participation certificates, and the ‘Graveyard Explorers’ book for completed work.

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, or contact us at with your queries..
