Friends of Hartwood Paupers Cemetery Project has been made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to rename our once lost 1255 souls, reunited individuals to long lost relatives, highlighted the journey of mental health, past and present whilst encouraging everyone to speak honestly and listen to each other without judgement

Thank you to North Lanarkshire Council and John Ashcroft for all their help, guidance and funding, which has helped us install a bench, provide PPE for our volunteers and plants for the barrels

Thank you to North Lanarkshire Restorative Justice Department for all the time, dedication and fabulous craftsmanship, building our popular library box, bird boxes, and insect havens.  We look forward to a continued partnership 

Than you to NLC Culture Hertiage Centre in Motherwell who allowed us to sit for weeks, transcribing the 2 books which contained the cemetery records. And thank you to to Andy, who lived in Hartwood and was a staff nurse for rescuing the books from the skip, otherwise we would have never been able to identify our 1255 souls by name 

Thank you to Iain MacKenzie and Lesley Cordiner NHwhich has S Lanarkshire Mental Health & Learning Disability Service for all their help and providing the funding of the boards, which renamed our 1255 souls giving them back dignity in death.
