Belfast City Cemetery opened in 1869 and is a fine example of the Victorian garden cemetery. Having secured a fi rst round pass from the Heritage Lottery Fund, HKD have developed the interpretation plan to secure £1.3m to deliver the project. The cemetery has a rich and complex history and the project aims to enhance and promote this while connecting to local residents in meaningful ways through a varied activity programme. Restoration, social history and biodiversity are key narratives.
New visitor centre due to open in May 2021.
