All UK cemeteries are at risk. Councils want to dig up all graves to sell off as 'new' burial plots. This video tells the story.    |    |    @southwarkwoods    |    Facebook Page Save Southwark Woods




Woods & Nature - Acres of inner London woods are being cut down


Heritage - Graves and memorials destroyed, including War Graves


Families - Not consulted, families say 'No' to digging up their dead


Religious Discrimination - Burial excludes up to half of residents for whom burial is the only option


Politics - Southwark Council's shameful burial cover-up, misleading the public, denying its own plans

Southwark Council is burying over the dead and wants to dig up thousands of graves for new burial plots - with devastating consequences for nature and heritage.


Acres of woods and graves have alrady been lost. But acres remain to be saved.


Stop Southwark bulldozing our cemeteries. Save them as nature reserves.
