The Friends of St. Helens Cemetery held its first meeting in January 2006 as a result of St. Helens Council inviting local people to become involved and take an interest in the heritage, planning, and day to day issues concerning the Cemeteries and Crematorium.


St. Helens Council continues to support The Friends and are active members of the  committee and sub-committee meetings.


The group initially met every 12 weeks to discuss a wide range of issues concerning the cemeteries and crematorium. During this time the group mainly focused on preserving and maintaining the overall appearance of the cemetery grounds and lobbied for changes and improvements in areas of car parking, use of cars in the cemeteries, dog fouling, damage and theft to graves and items left on them.

The Friends of St. Helens Cemetery are a vibrant and active group who will continue to develop their programme of events, strive to maintain and protect the environment and grounds of the cemeteries, and plan new initiatives which will enhance the cemeteries for the local community and visitors.
