Your support provides care and protection for this special place
Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust is a charity committed to protecting and enhancing the cemetery. You can visit us for free, every day of the year. Every donation we receive goes into protecting and enhancing this historic site for the community of Bristol to enjoy.
“There is nothing like this to my knowledge around here. It feels like a secret.”
Join the Arnos Vale Community. We have always been a strong community, willing to fight to protect this special place. We owe our existence to the incredible community campaign which saved the cemetery from redevelopment in the 1990s. We are as committed today as we were then to protect and care for this special place. By becoming a regular donor, you will be helping safeguard the cemetery now and for the future.
“We’ve got Arnos Vale now, we’ve got it safe, and we mustn’t let go of it again. We’ve all got a stake in keeping it going.”
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

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.
