We will maintain these special areas, at no expense to the grave owner.
After the burial, the grave is left mounded as considerable sinkage will occur. When the ground has stabilised it is made level and grassed over (this may take between six months to a year after burial).
We allow a small planting area in front of the headstone, provided that the memorial does not take up all of the allotted space. This is 2ft from the rear of the memorial forward, and 2ft from the rear of the memorial left and right. This can be joined making a small planting area. Only small flowers/bulbs may be planted, and all shrubs/conifers and larger plants require the written permission of the Cemetery Manager.
So that we can maintain these areas, nothing else is allowed to be placed or grown on or around the grave and the area in front of the headstone is grassed over.
