Gated Gardens

500 gated family gardens are located within the Memorial Gardens.

Each individually designed by Edward White to represent a 'home-coming', and in which are interred the ashes of some well-known people.

One of the larger gardens, the Ghurkha Memorial Garden, is in memory of the 4th Prince of Wales' own Ghurkha Rifles.

Friends of Stoke Poges

The staff of five gardeners are assisted by the Friends of Stoke Poges volunteer group who come in regularly to help out. More volunteers are always welcome.

To contact or join this volunteer group, email the Friends of Stoke Poges.
