The Friends of Horton Cemetery has been awarded a grant by Historic England for the “Out of Sight, Out of Mind Project”. This public awareness project is headed up by the Charity’s history consultant Dr. Alana Harris of King’s College London and local Epsom resident.
Our project, supported by Historic England, seeks to recapture these stories and to create a crowd-sourced memorial, overcoming historical amnesia, neglect, and inaction.

A digital & arts-based project, revisioning the life histories of patients in the UK's largest asylum cemetery @HistoricEngland @Horton_cemetery @DrAlanaHarris
We need your help!
We are seeking volunteers (who will be trained, and work in pairs) to lead public engagement ‘chat and craft’ workshops, which will discuss the history of the ‘Epsom Asylum’ cluster and its cemetery.
