The tours of the 37 acre cemetery are full of wonderful architecture, sculpture and fascinating stories relating to the 50,000 people remembered there. As a charity, donations they receive from the tours are used for restoration work.
Prior booking is essential, with FoGN members having priority on bookings. All other places will be allocated on a first come basis and the meeting point will be provided with every confirmed booking.
Given the popularity of the tours they are expected to be fully subscribed so, to avoid disappointment, you are advised to book early by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. More info here.
