There are many monuments in the Chapel and gardens to the Gaskell and Monks families.

The well maintained gardens are a sanctuary in the centre of Warrington. Visitors are welcome to walk around the gardens and burial grounds.

The Chapel will be open on Saturday 17 th September from 10am until 4pm and on Sunday 18th September from 12pm until 4pm.

Refreshments will be available during the Open Days and a plant stall will be selling a variety of plants including home grown Crinodendron plants
