Living in Brislington, we are so lucky to have the beautiful Arnos Vale Cemetery on our doorstep. With its 45 acres of trees, wildflowers, open spaces, classical architecture and more than 300,000 people who are buried or remembered there, from much-loved members of ordinary Bristol families to those who changed the world or sacrificed their lives in war, it is a great place to visit.
Jos said, ‘Four years ago, I was asked to become a trustee of the cemetery and to be honest, I jumped at the chance. Like many people in the area, I have fond memories of time spent wandering around, looking at the graves and enjoying the calm surroundings. When my son was small, we would go into the cemetery and have ‘adventures’ because at that time the place was unloved and quite neglected’
Jos and Andrew witnessed some of the anti-social behaviour firsthand on a tour of the site with cemetery staff.
