Behind the Friends Meeting House lies a large and peaceful burial ground where many of the names on the simple headstones record the Quaker families who influenced the history of Darlington. From humble beginnings many of them rose to positions of wealth and great influence. A detailed guide to some of the eminent Quakers laid to rest in the Burial Ground can be found here.
The Burial Ground is open to the public and is an oasis of peace and tranquillity in the heart of Darlington town centre. We invite you to come and visit and enjoy it.
