Thank you. Your support provides care and protection for this special place

Garden of Rest hedge appeal

The hedge surrounding our Garden of Rest has been irreparably damaged by box caterpillars and badly needs replacing. The cost of this is £8,500 which we simply can’t afford without your help.

The Garden of Rest provides a serene final resting place for our loved ones and a tranquil place to visit. Your donations will go directly into removing the damaged hedge and stumps and replanting with 300 yew plants, ensuring the garden is beautifully restored and fitting for the cemetery.

"Today, during a visit to my mum’s grave, I was so upset to see the devastation caused by box caterpillars to the once green and tranquil garden. A little help from each of us will restore this serene place that means so much to so many."

A Gift in your Will

Your legacy, with love

After you’ve taken care of loved ones, you may wish to leave a gift in your Will to Arnos Vale. These kind gifts protect our wonderful heritage; allowing nature to thrive and inspiring the next generation to value, enjoy and visit this wonderful place.

Gifts in Wills are used right at the heart of our work: from restoring our listed buildings and protecting wildlife habitats, to repairing pathways and working with communities.


How you’re remembered

Your Will tells the people you leave behind about the person you are. It also helps pass on your principles and the values that matter to you.

Your greatest gift

We all have financial commitments, which means we can’t always do as much as we’d like while we are here. So a gift in your Will, of as little as one percent of your estate, is an opportunity to give more than you might ever have been able to give in your lifetime, ensuring this special place is protected and enhanced long into the future.

How to leave your legacy

If you’d like to include Arnos Vale in your Will, please ask your solicitor to use our full name and details to ensure the gift reaches us. These are:

Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust, a charity registered in England and Wales no. 1120210. Registered office: West Lodge, Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bath Road, BS4 3EW.

There are a number of things to consider when making your Will. You can download our guide and download our checklist or email legacy@arnosvale.org.uk to receive a pack by post.

Telling us about your special gift

Your Will is personal and it’s entirely up to you if you wish to share this information. But if you do choose to tell us, we’d love to be able to thank you properly and let you know how your gift can help. Download our pledger form to let us know your intentions.
