Heene Cemetery received a grant on the 24th February 2020 of £10,000 from The National Lottery Heritage Fund for an exciting heritage project, Collect, Preserve and Share the History of Heene Cemetery Burials.
Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project focuses on building a website to share the heritage and conservation work being carried out and particularly the burials of people aged 5 years to 45 years and their causes of death.
Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, the project will enable local people to learn and improve research, recording and public speaking skills.
A short quiz for adults and children will be developed to interest and encourage the public to learn more about heritage and conservation that they might not know.

Bringing the past, into the present
This new dedicated website will help people access the information established during this project and understand more about the heritage and conservation of Heene Cemetery.
The Cultural and Natural heritage of Heene Cemetery was identified in 1992 when Heene Cemetery was Designated a West Sussex Site of Conservation Importance because of the “old meadow land” and lies within the Heene Conservation Area classified by Adur and Worthing Councils.
