We follow a regular maintenance programme in all of our Cemeteries. All maintenance is weather dependent and we cannot take any responsibility for plants, ornaments or any other items left in the grounds.
Following a burial
14 to 21 days – floral tributes will be removed.
Interment date to 20 weeks later – the grave will be reviewed and topped up as necessary unless the grave is obviously being maintained by family.
After 20 weeks – the grave will be reviewed again and turfed or grass seeded unless it is obviously being maintained by family.
It can take up to 12 months, depending on ground conditions, for the grave to settle fully.
From 12 months after a burial
We will always cut the grass but should you require more individual service, there is a grave maintenance programme that can help keep the grave looking at its best.
Number of tendings

Halfmoon / edge up memorial

Keeping you in the picture
As you may not always be able to visit the grave, we provide a photograph of the work undertaken each time it is done. In this way, you have personal reassurance of the work carried out.
Placing wreath / flowers
We will place fresh flowers or a seasonal wreath on the grave twice per year.
