The Trust has created a shop within the Visitor Centre. Locally produced jams and chutneys, Plymouth tea and a variety of local interest and history books are among the items available. There is also a second-hand book section. All profits from the sale of these items help to support the Trust and its work in caring for Ford Park Cemetery.
The Trust has an on-going project to photograph all the headstone inscriptions in the Cemetery, and is looking for volunteers to join the team. Experience is not necessary as training will be given. If you think you might be interested or would like more information please call the Cemetery Office on 01752 665442.
