Have you ever walked around a cemetery or graveyard and thought ‘I wonder how they died?’ Well now’s your chance to find out.

Hear about drownings and hangings, murder and unfortunate accidents, a ‘crinoline death’, diseases of the past such as cholera and smallpox, childbirth complications and fatal childhood diseases.

We will share some stories, drop some knowledge and open your mind to the ways people from the past met their end.

PLEASE NOTE; Friday 16th August tour has been cancelled due to bad weather

Warning: this tour is not for the faint hearted, and not suitable for children.

This tour starts at the East Lodge

We have free parking on site, and cycle racks available. There is an accessible parking space outside each chapel. Further information can be found on our Visiting Arnos Vale page.

Arnos Vale Cemetery is not a fully accessible site. The tour route includes some steps, steep slopes and muddy or uneven paths. Wearing warm clothes and sensible shoes is strongly recommended.
