Maintenance of grounds

Maintenance of the grounds goes on throughout the year, but there may be times when the grounds look untidy. If you're concerned contact us by emailing

When the council is digging graves, it will sometimes have to place soil and equipment on top of graves near to the excavation.

Staff take precautions and a platform protecting the grave below is built before soil is put on top. It is impractical to remove all soil and they try to leave everything neat and tidy within a short time of any burial.

The council apologises if this affects you and there is a chance that it will affect most people visiting the cemetery at some stage, particularly where there are full-sized memorials.
