Philips Park Cemetery
Our group, "Friends of Philips Park Cemetery" aim to create a safe and welcoming cemetery where visitors can enjoy pleasant surroundings and peaceful gardens.
We aim to make a considerable difference to the condition and state of the cemetery through grant funding which is much needed for this 45 acre site.
Philips Park Cemetery is listed by English Heritage as a grade 2 listed site on the register of parks and gardens of special historical interest in England. The cemetery also contains a number of graves of historical interest.
Opening Times: Monday - Sunday 8.00am - Dusk
Visitors have commented on how much better the cemetery looks already. Many local people in and around this area have lived here all there lives and are so pleased things are beginning to look better in their local cemetery.
This is an area of inner city Manchester and is one of a few open green spaces people can enjoy and go for walks etc. We know from the comments people make as they're passing that this is a much needed project and will be greatly appreciated by all visitors. We as a group feel we have the drive and determination to meet all our intended goals for all of these reasons.
The visitors to this cemetery have been coming here for many years and would love to see the area transformed into the beautiful place it could and should be. The cemetery should have sympathetic and respectful surroundings as anyone who has lost a loved one will agree.
The cemetery is well attended and could be a learning environment for the local community and for the children who grow up in this area. This cemetery has such a lot of potential and 'The Friends' group have a vision for this.
We feel this is just the start of many improvements which can be made to this local cemetery and for the many thousands of visitors to the graves in this 45 acre site.
