Adopt a War Grave

Darwen Eastern and Western Cemeteries have 97 War Graves within the grounds. 
The majority are in the Old Western Cemetery.  
We are asking interested families or organisations if they would like to adopt a war grave to help with the up keep.   
All we are asking is you visit the grave on a regular basis and tend the bed of the grave. You may plant flowers or place floral tributes,  
The Headstones are the responsibility of Commonwealth War Graves Commission - and they will clean or repair them.

If you are interested in this project please click the Link below. 
Please let us know if there is a particular grave you wish to adopt and we will do our best to accommodate this.
