The burial ground was established in 1855 for the joint use of The Retreat and York Preparative Meeting. The land lies at the far end of the extensive wooded grounds of the hospital and can be accessed freely. Friends have rights of burial in perpetuity.
Friargate Quaker Meeting takes responsibility for oversight of the burial ground which has recently been extended for the second time, and meets the costs of maintenance provided by The Retreat.
All stones have to be of a standard type.
The ground is reached by taking the entrance to The Retreat on Heslington Road and using the driveways down through the grounds.
