Family Ceme-Tree Day at Southwark Woods in London

If you're interested in the burials at Camberwell Old Cemetery in Southwark Woods, London, this may be of interest on Bank Holiday Monday:

The woods are in their glory! This Bank Holiday Monday, we are celebrating the beautiful Southwark Woods in south London, and demanding their protection from the council's chainsaws.

7,000 now say No! online and on paper petitions to Southwark's plans to fell hundreds of trees, clear wild woodland and dig up hundreds of old graves - for thousands of private new burial plots.

The larger the throng, the louder the song:

Family Ceme-Tree Day
11.00am - 1.00pm Bank Holiday Monday 25th May
Camberwell Old Cemetery, Forest Hill Road London SE22 0SQ

Save the Ceme-trees. Meet Your Family Tree. Adopt an Oak. While we still can.
Once it's gone, it's gone.

Sign the petition:
