Grants for the conservation of churchyard structures

Next closing date: Monday 22 May 2017

Grant applications will be considered from anglican churches in England. To be eligible, the churchyard must be under the responsibility of the PCC and the structure must be listed separately from the church building. If the wall, monuments, railings or gates are in a closed churchyard and responsibility of the Local Authority they do not qualify for a grant. Works of a cosmetic nature or soft landscaping are not eligible.

Grant awards are usually up to £8,000. Details of previous awards can be found in our Annual Report.

Applications are made online and you will be asked to upload the following supporting documentation:

  • Conservation report prepared in accordance with our guidelines
  • Latest Quinquennial Inspection report
  • Brief summary of any recommendations in the Quinquennial Inspection report that have been completed, are in progress or are about to be put in hand.
  • DAC and any other advice on the project
  • Letter from your Archdeacon in support of the project
  • Statement of most recent annual audited church accounts.

If you have already obtained a conservation report, and you have the supporting documents listed above, you can apply via our online application form. Click on the link below to start your application.
